BA pilot holiday pay row lands in court
Sally Williams is an airline pilot employed by BA. When working, she received basic pay, a flying time pay supplement and an allowance for time away from base. Under her employment contract her holiday pay was at the basic pay rate only. She complained that her holiday pay shuold be equal to the total amount she normally earned when working and that by paying basic rate only BA was in breach of the Civil Aviation (Working Time) Regulations 2004. The case, of course, concerns many pilots and the ultimate decision may include points of interest for employers generally.
