‘Rolled-up’ pay ruling should cut tribunal toll

first_img‘Rolled-up’ pay ruling should cut tribunal tollOn 19 Aug 2003 in Personnel Today The number of firms taken to tribunal over alleged unpaid holiday leave ispredicted to fall, following recent rulings by the Employment Appeal Tribunal(EAT) on ‘rolled-up’ holiday pay. Sharon Latham, an employment specialist with law firm Clarke Willmott,believes the EAT’s decision that rolled-up holiday pay can be permitted in manycases – provided it is clearly incorporated into contracts of employment – willreduce employment tribunal claims on the subject. Rolled-up holiday pay essentially means employees are pre-payed for holidaysby including an additional allowance in their hourly rate of pay. This meansthey do not receive payment for holidays as and when they take them, but mustinstead budget their wages accordingly to cover holiday leave. This payment method has been criticised by some workers’ groups as it isseen to reduce the incentive for employees to take holidays. Latham said confusion had arisen over the legality of rolled-up pay clausesin employment contracts since the introduction of the Working Time Regulationsin 1998, which entitles staff to four weeks paid holiday. She urged employers using rolled-up holiday pay to make it very clear tostaff that holiday pay is incorporated in their hourly wages. “Make sure your staff understand that their wages are slightly higherto accommodate for holiday pay and that they realise this additional moneyshould be put aside to cover time off for holidays,” said Latham.

MBB : On the block: A position-by-position breakdown of Syracuse vs. DePaul

first_img Comments Point guardScoop Jardine was instrumental in leading Syracuse to perhaps its two biggest road victories of the 2010-11 season last week against Villanova and Georgetown. Against Villanova, he scored 20. Against Georgetown, he paced the Orange down the stretch when the Hoyas made their run to get back into what was once a lopsided contest. When he’s on, Jardine is a huge key for SU. He showed last week he can take over and win games for this team.Advantage: SyracuseShooting guardBrandon Triche cooled off shooting-wise against Georgetown, but he’s been impressive as well to complement Jardine in the backcourt in SU’s four-game winning streak. And even when he didn’t contribute last Saturday at Georgetown (1-of-7 shooting), Triche went a cool 6-for-6 from the free-throw line. He has made a notable 27 consecutive free throws, including many in the clutch.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAdvantage: SyracuseSmall forwardKris Joseph was almost nonexistent in the Orange’s two wins last week, which only proves SU has a core group out of which any player can step up and win games. He scored seven points against Villanova and just four against Georgetown. And though Syracuse survived on the road without his contributions, he needs to start playing better heading into postseason play. Against DePaul, he’ll have a favorable matchup against an undersized Blue Demons team.Advantage: SyracusePower forwardRick Jackson will undoubtedly look to go out of the Carrier Dome with a bang in his senior swan song. And it would be fitting with the year he’s had thus far as undoubtedly the Orange’s MVP. He’ll be matched up against another undersized Blue Demon in the 6-foot-6, 225-pound sophomore Tony Freeland. And he should be able to dominate once again inside, both on offense and defense.Advantage: SyracuseCenterSince taking over the starting position in SU’s loss at Louisville from fellow freshman Fab Melo, Baye Moussa Keita has actually played fewer minutes in all five games compared with his season average. Most of the playing time here has gone to C.J. Fair as Jackson shifts to the center spot. When DePaul’s Krys Faber is matched up against Moussa Keita, he’ll have the edge.Advantage: DePaulBenchFair is the key here as he tries to rebound off his shakiest performance in a while at Georgetown. He played only 11 minutes and was held scoreless by a relentless Hoyas defense. But overall, he’s played well lately, and SU head coach Jim Boeheim can also plug in Dion Waiters and James Southerland, who shot well against Georgetown. DePaul doesn’t have much of a bench and is playing with only nine scholarship players.Advantage: Syracuse — Compiled by Brett LoGiurato, sports editor, [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Published on March 3, 2011 at 12:00 pmlast_img read more
