Including Commission In Holiday Pay - British Gas Loses Right To Appeal
7 March 2017
British Gas has been refused leave to appeal the Court of Appeal's verdict in the case of Lock v British Gas at the Supreme Court.
The decision means that the judicial process cannot be taken further and that the ruling in Lock, that employers should include commission when calculating holiday pay, is now case law. However, lawyers have suggested that the Lock ruling may not apply after Brexit as it is based on the EU's Working Time Directive, the protections of which could end up incorporated into any Great Repeal Bill after the UK leaves the EU.
