Newsflash: Holiday Pay Claims

According to a report in WSB, Unite has announced it is not appealing the Employment Appeal Tribunal's decision in Bear Scotland v Fulton case, which has the effect of (largely) preventing claims for holiday-pay backpay going back to 1998.

And if anyone think that's the end of backpay claims, think again...  Someone else is bound to challenge Bear Scotland, and also test the (obiter) indications in previous cases that these backpay claims cannot be brought in the civil courts (with a six year limitation period).
