Update – holiday pay: Unite decide not to appeal
According to a report today (WSB), Unite has decided not to appeal the EAT’s decision in the case of Bear Scotland v Fulton [for previous commentary see here – More Holiday Pay and Holiday pay - the EAT decides].
This is on the face of it good news for employers – but query whether it does fundamentally change the position. At some stage it is well-nigh certain that the point will be litigated further, particularly given that the judge in the EAT said that an appeal on time limits was arguable. It does, however, potentially serve to buy employers more time to consider their position without any immediate threat of a reversal of the decision on time-limits.
