Hi all,

Hope you all had a good Christmas!

I have a client who is in recruitment. He pays temp workers and they accrue holiday pay as per standard practice. At the end of the year he pays them the balance of their holiday pay that they have not taken. I said I thought that the holidays would be written off and not paid but my client insists that because they are temporary workers he has to pay them.

I'm not entirely convinced, I always assumed that it was a "take them or lose them" situation. It certainly was for me in employment!

Can anyone clarify the situation for me? I guess that if it's in their contract it must be done but I'm looking to future employees etc.
