Continuing your learning

Overpayment recovery workshop:
For many reasons, holiday pay is occasionally overpaid to employees. The rules governing the right to reclaim overpayments from employees are complex and must be managed with caution. This course clarifies the impact of case law and statutes on this subject and identifies the best practice for reclaiming overpayments and minimising the risk of them arising.

Termination payments:
Holiday pay is a common component of termination packages. This course will elaborate on when this and other payments are due in which circumstances. Also, the calculation methods and whether they are liable to statutory deductions or are partially or wholly exempt are explored.
