Holiday Pay and Schools
A client runs a pre-school and insists that they and "many other pre-schools" actually pay staff for their holiday entitlement, while not paying them when they are not actually working (as well as not allowing holidays during term time, which I suspect is OK and normal in schools).
This smacks of paying statutory holiday in lieu - which I understand is illegal and has been for a little while now.
Has anyone else here got pre-school clients who still use this practice? Or is there some obscure exception to this aspect of the law?
