Appeal to be heard on whether holiday pay should include commission


Thu, 14 Jan 2016

The EAT will shortly be considering the appeal by British Gas against an employment tribunal decision on annual leave and commission (Lock v British Gas Trading Ltd). The main issue is whether employers are required to pay employees during annual leave for commission that they would have earned had they been at work. The ET held that wording should be read into English legislation to give effect to Directive 2003/88 and the ECJ's judgment.
