Holiday Pay on Worked Overtime!

ARE YOU EMPLOYED IN THE NHS UNDER AGENDA FOR CHANGE TERMS AND CONDITIONS?

DO YOU REGULARLY WORK OVERTIME?

IS THE OVERTIME INCLUDED IN THE CALCULATION OF WHAT YOU ARE PAID WHEN ON ANNUAL LEAVE?

The recent Court of Appeal judgment in the case of:

East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust –v- Neil Flowers & Others   [2019] EWCA Civ 947 – has confirmed that if you regularly work overtime, whether mandatory, end of shift or shift over-runs, your employer should be considering that when calculating your annual leave pay.

GMB representatives are currently working with Trusts to resolve this issue.

If you believe that you are not being paid correctly when on annual leave you need to complete and return the enclosed Claim Form to assess whether or not you have a potential claim.
