Recently, the FCSA in partnership with Global Recruiter hosted a live webinar for agencies on the pressing topic of annual leave and holiday pay for temporary workers.
With guest speakers Phil Pluck, FCSA’s Chief Executive and Simon Bloch, Partner at FCSA assessor firm, JMW Solicitors LLP, if you were unable to attend, you can now watch this webinar on-demand.
What the webinar covers
The laws relating to holiday entitlement and holiday pay are not new. So why do so many employers continue this wrong, especially in the temporary labour market? Surely the law is well established enough in this area that there is no room to getting it wrong.
In this webinar, employment law and compliance experts from the FCSA demystify some of the myths and preconceptions employers of contractors may have when it comes to understanding holiday entitlement and how to correctly calculate holiday pay.
