With regard to claims for holidays already taken, aside from very recent holidays we believe that’s unlikely although the door is not completely shut. Doubtless there will be a test case.
Naturally with any such significant shift in law the first task will be to consider the financial impact. Once that’s done we recommend that employers review their current contracts and policies and consider any knock-on effects. Perhaps the most obvious knock-on effect will be the impact on pensions.
