HOLIDAY PAY - FLOW CHART
1. Branch Secretaries together with Legal & Medical Secretaries
(where appropriate) and in conjunction with the Lead
Divisional Rep from each Division need to give the widest
possible circulation to this LTB to inform members of their rights to
make claims for the “non-payment of holiday pay” whilst on leave
for each week or period of leave from the start of April 2019.
2. These members do not need to be grade specific as the claim is
about employer v employee.
3. It does not matter whether these members are part-time or fulltime as this is about additional hours worked and average
4. Claims for holiday pay entitlement only covers the first 20 days of
any annual leave. Therefore members taking leave should submit
a claim based on their average wages over the previous twelve
5. ET Claims need to be submitted no longer than 3 months from
their last period of leave or the claim will be null and void.
6. To commence the process a grievance must be formally registered
with Royal Mail Group and the claimant must then immediately
complete step 7 below in order to protect the claim. (Grievance
timescales are 1-14 days with manager, 5-28 days second line
manager and appeals 12-42 days but can be progressed
7. All claimants must complete and submit the on-line ACAS Early
Conciliation application which requires details of themselves, who
the claim is against, i.e. Royal Mail Group, the basis of the
claim, non-payment of holiday pay and in the section
regarding representation they should put either the name of
their Branch Secretary or Legal and Medical Secretary and
8. Claimants will receive notification from ACAS that their claim has
been successfully lodged.
9. ACAS will contact Royal Mail to enquire if they are interested in
early conciliation (we expect the answer to be negative). If this
happens that will be the end of the early conciliation process and
ACAS will notify the member and provide them with an appropriate
10.Once the member receives the ACAS certificate which states the
process has concluded, members must then immediately submit a
claim to an Employment Tribunal (usually on-line) using form ET1.
Please note our members must include the ACAS early
conciliation certification reference number, which must be included
in the appropriate section of the ET1 application form.
11.The Employment Tribunal Office will send confirmation to the
member that their ET1 application has been successfully lodged.
Please note in the section of the ET1 form regarding
representation, the member must again complete this by
stating the name and Office address of either their Branch
Secretary or Legal and Medical Secretary. The Employment
Tribunal Offices will then contact this representative and it will be
the intention to liaise with the Tribunal Service in order to request
that all the claims are grouped as a collective claim against Royal
Mail. This will then be done in conjunction with the Union’s
Solicitors at Unionline
