Driver awarded €14,600 compensation for 20 years of holiday underpayment

August 31, 2021

In the recent case of A Driver v A County Council (ADJ-00032324) before the Workplace Relations Commission, an adjudicator found in favour of an employee who claimed that regular and rostered overtime, a site allowance together with an on-call payment should have been calculated in the driver’s holiday pay.  The AO did not agree with the Employer’s view that any retrospection should be limited to two calendar years from the date of the claim.
