Agard v Westminster Kingsway College - Calculation of a "week's pay" includes paid holiday as well as actual time working [2010] EAT

Denominator when calculating a "week's pay" is the weeks for which an employee is paid, which includes both working weeks and paid holiday.

Her salary was £13,155.39.
