Whilst we are happy to talk to you about whether you are an innie or an outie, of the EU Referendum variety (not belly buttons) or about your holiday plans or memories, we are focusing our next workshop on holiday pay and in particular on bonuses, overtime and part-time employees.
If you would like to know the answers to any of the following questions (and more), do please join us at our workshop on 29 June 2016:

- What is the correct reference period for averaging pay?
- Can’t we argue that commission, bonuses and allowances already include an element of holiday pay?

- Does one instance of correct payment break a series of deductions?
- Could retrospective claims for back pay still be made post-Bear Scotland?
- Other remedies for underpaid holiday
- Is there a remedy for workers who have left employment?
- Can workers bring civil claims to avoid the three-month time limit?
- Can workers claim interest on awards of holiday pay?
- Should contracts of employment be amended in the light of Bear Scotland?
- How are atypical workers affected?
