A report by the High Pay Centre has found that FTSE CEOs are paid an average of £4.964 million per annum.
This represents a slight increase on CEO pay of £4.923 million in 2013 but a more dramatic rise from the £4.129 million average in 2010. They are paid approximately 183 times what the average UK worker earns.
For a request to be valid under the Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations, it has to be made by at least 10 per cent of employees in the “undertaking”. In Moyer Lee and anor v Comely Workplace Ltd, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) held that the “undertaking” is the legal entity which is the employer.
Generally annual leave cannot be carried over to the next holiday year unless there is an agreement to do so or the employee is on sick leave. In Plumb v Duncan Print Group Ltd, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) held that workers who are off sick do not have to show that they were unable or unwilling to take the leave because of their medical condition, and that it can be taken up to 18 months after the leave year in which it accrued.
