Pimlico Plumbers – too late to claim for holiday pay

25 March 2019

A journey that has seen Gary Smith and Pimlico Plumbers go all the way to the Supreme Court to establish and uphold worker status and thus the right to for Smith to be paid holiday leave has now received an employment tribunal ruling that confirms that the claim of £74,000 for unpaid holiday fails because it falls outside of the three month rule for claiming.


Pimlico Plumbers had admitted to the claim of unlawful deductions to the value of £336 but denied the payment for holiday pay was due.


Gary Smith is reported to be appealing this ruling.
