    Zero contract and paid holidays? 10th Oct 17 at 4:27 PM
    Hi,
    I have been employed with a zero contract since June 2016.My hourly rate is £8.20.I have been under the impression as since itís a zero contract Iím not entitled to paid holiday leave.I have now been given a new contract to sign saying Iím entitled to 0.1208hours paid holiday leave per hour worked.But my hourly rate has been dropped to £7.50?!?
    So my question is have I always been entitled to holiday pay?If so can I get it back dated and are they allowed to just decrease my wages now they are giving me holiday pay?

    It depends if you were previously simply paid 12.07% on top of your salary as holiday pay

    In most circumstances that would be unlawful. Rolled up holiday pay is generally against the law.

    That said, the employer would have an argument to say that they didn't realise that and have now corrected it, but have actually paid the holiday pay. So unless the OP had some evidence that they were paid without holiday pay included, it would get very messy.
