Why you should attend

Holiday pay and leave has been recently subjected to numerous case law decisions and statutes, becoming a difficult provision to manage correctly. Administering this statutory and often contractual right usually falls to payroll and HR to jointly handle and this course is aimed at both disciplines.

Commencing with a detailed explanation of the impact of influential case law and statutes and the differences between the different types of annual leave, delegates are taught how to apply these parameters to a range of circumstances from backpay to part-time entitlements. The interaction between holiday leave and sickness and maternity leave is also explored.

Continuing your learning

Creating a payroll procedure manual:
Calculating the entitlement of holiday pay is one of many obligations that Payroll Supervisors and Managers have to incorporate into their continually-evolving procedural documentation.
This course covers the theory and practicalities that need to be considered when designing a procedures document that all payroll departments need to ensure all statutory and contractual obligations are managed efficiently and professionally.

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 statues 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 is explored.
