The article explains the process by which employees in Great Britain could claim unpaid holiday leaves, and advises employers on ways to limit their exposure to these claims. It relates that employees can claim unpaid leave under the 1998 Working Time Regulations (WTR) or the 1996 Employment Rights Act (ERA), and that holiday entitlement claims could be backdated over several years. It adds that employers could prevent the accrual of back payments by directing their workforce to use up their statutory leaves before paying sick leaves.
