Government taskforce to assess judgment in holiday pay ruling

04 November 2014

Business Secretary Vince Cable has announced he is setting up a taskforce to assess the possible impact of the ruling on holiday pay from the Employment Appeal Tribunal.

The announcement from the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) says that the taskforce will consist of a selection of government departments and business representative groups. The taskforce will provide a forum to discuss how the impact on business can be limited.

Possibly the most worrying aspect of this issue is that the legal position may still not be finalised for several years yet. We must surely hope that the taskforce will consider finding a way to bring the continuing uncertainty to an end, one way or another.
