Millions of workers could receive backdated overtime pay
4th November 2014


Businesses are facing the payment of billions of pounds worth of backdated pay to staff after an employment tribunal ruled voluntary overtime should be included in holiday pay.
 
If the ruling is upheld, it could affect more than five million people, who would see an increase in their salaries.
 
The Evening Standard's Consumer Business editor Jonathan Prynn discusses the news, which may come as extremely positive news to staff across the country.
 
Jonathan discusses the benefits of the solution, when it’s likely to come in - if it is not challenged and quashed - and what it means for small businesses and start-ups. 
 
Jonathan also explains how it will impact zero hour contracts.
