Holiday Pay Change For Some Staff
Perhaps you or a colleague is sometimes – or always – paid on a casual work basis, perhaps fluctuating seasonally. If so there is an important change to holiday pay soon to take effect.
Forwarding this article to any colleague or friend in this situation may help them understand the changes.
Holiday pay traditionally is paid when staff take their holiday entitlement.
But this was not always the case, and the government has now agreed that a different system for paying holiday entitlement money will soon come into operation. No date has yet been announced for this to change.
The new system is called Rolled Up Holiday Pay (RUHP) and it means that those workers not in permanent employment, but are casually employed, will receive a percentage of that holiday entitlement money in their wage packet each month. This will be in addition to their wage and identified as their RHIP.
The system is not new and untried. It was used for casual employment until 2006 then stopped. Now however it has been decided this system is better for casual staff and will be used in the future.
