Welcome to Employment Edit, our regular update giving the pick of the key developments in employment law from the last couple of weeks:

  • The EAT is considering whether overtime should be included in the calculation of holiday pay in three co-joined cases of Bear Scotland Ltd v Fulton and Baxter, Hertel (UK) Ltd v Wood and others and Amec Group v Law and others. The cases are being heard in the period 30 July to 1 August, although the judgment is not expected until a few weeks later.  We understand that the case of Neil v Freightliner, which involved a similar issue, has settled.
  • The government has begun consultation on the draft National Minimum Wage (Consolidation) Regulations.
  • The Department for Work and Pensions has published Guidance on employing disabled people and people with health conditions.
