Changes to holiday entitlement and pay
There have been longstanding concerns about the complexities of holiday entitlement and holiday pay. Ongoing cases on a range of holiday issues have all presented challenges for employers.
The Government is looking to simplify matters and the Employment Rights (Amendment, Revocation and Transitional Provision) Regulations 2023 came into force on 1 January 2024, with various implementation dates throughout 2024.
Employment partner, Matthew Smith and Simon Cheetham KC of Old Square Chambers, will be presenting the webinar. Simon has been recognised as a leading practitioner in employment law by Chambers & Partners, The Legal 500 and Who’s Who Legal for many years and we are delighted that he is joining us.
Matthew and Simon will:
- Set the scene and provide an overview of holiday entitlement and pay
- Explain the need for reform
- Provide an overview of the new Regulations
- Discuss the practical implications
- Identify potentially tricky issues for employers
As well as discussion and insights from Matthew and Simon, there will be an opportunity for you to ask questions (and we will always ensure your questions are dealt with on an anonymous basis).
