Labour & European Law Review

Coinciding with the introduction of the National Living Wage (NLW) last week, the government has published guidance on how to calculate the new National Minimum Wage (NMW).
The rules governing the Appeal Tribunal state that a Notice of Appeal will not be validly “served” unless the accompanying documentation is “attached” to it. In Majekodunmi v City Facilities Management UK Ltd and ors, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) held that, as the accompanying documents were not attached to an e-mail but simply had a link to Dropbox, the Notice of Appeal was not properly served.
The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has upheld the tribunal decision in Lock v British Gas Trading Ltd that the Working Time Regulations (WTR) have to be interpreted so as to comply with the European Working Time Directive when calculating holiday pay.
