Holiday pay IV

Case Law

  • In Williams v British Airways 2011 – ECJ held the Aviation Directive entitled employees to all pay that:
    • is intrinsically linked to performance and is a quantifiable amount
    • relates to “personal and professional status” e.g. seniority, service
    • the ECJ ruled this interpretation also applied to the Working Time Directive
    • ECJ – a worker should receive their “normal remuneration” during holiday
