Do you receive regular additional payments such as unsocial hours and overtime payments, shift premiums, commission or bonuses, but you aren’t paid these when you take annual leave?
The European Court has recently ruled in a UNISON case that workers ought not to suffer financially when they take annual leave. This means that if you receive any of the above payments or any other additional payments when you are at work (other than expenses) but do not receive them for periods when you are on holiday, you may be able to claim back pay in respect of non-payment of these additional sums.
