Making a claim for holiday pay

29 Jul 2019, 16:04

So from what I can gather from my local branch, they’re encouraging members to start claims dating to April (3 months).

I understand that the union is trying to negotiate for further backdated pay. But is there anything stopping members from claiming holiday pay backdated to any date?

Not as far as I know but if they refuse to settle and you have to go to a tribunal they can only make judgements that go back 3 months from the initial complaint. I am not a legal expert but if they think your claim is out of time because you claimed more then 3 months from the complaint they can refuse to make a judgement and dismiss your case.

Check out the Union room for various LTBs on the subject.

Thought so. I always keep an eye out for the LTBs about holiday pay, but it seems Royal Mail don’t want to cooperate. I’m confused as to how they managed to get away with it, as far as I’m aware, it’s law to account overtime in holiday pay. Must be a grey area somewhere?

So if you go down the ACAS route the back pay will only be to April rather than the 2 years that some suggest we're entitled to?
