Griffin v City & Islington College - Holiday pay entitlement under the Working Time Regulations  EAT
Employers conceded liability for holiday pay under the Working Time Regulations at the Employment Tribunal on the basis that the decision of the EAT in List Design Group v Douglas  ICR 636 entitled the employee to 3 years' holiday pay. A few days later, the Court of Appeal in HMRC v Ainsworth & Anor  IRLR 465 held that the approach in List Design was wrong. The effect was to limit to 3 months the period in respect of which unpaid holiday pay could be claimed under the WTR. The Tribunal then agreed that compensation should be reduced accordingly.
