Employment Tribunal claim template for accrued Holiday Pay when you leave the job

This guide provides simple information on the kind of claim you should make and what you should ask the tribunal for. It provides templates to help you frame your claim in the right language so that the Employment Tribunal Judge understands your claim.

Your employment tribunal claim sets out the legal and factual basis of your claim. If you get it wrong, the Employment Tribunal will throw out your claim. Use this guide to make your claim in the Employment Tribunal where your employer fails  to pay your accrued holiday after you have left the job.

Where you have left the job, your Employer must make a payment for accrued but untaken leave in your final leave year. If you have accrued leave because of being off work sick, you can carry that leave over into a subsequent year. This applies whether or not you were dismissed with notice pay.

Holiday pay is regarded as wages.  Payments that are factored into holiday pay include commission, overtime, some types of bonuses and allowances, and similar premiums. This means that unpaid holiday pay can be claimed under the unauthorised deductions from wages regime in the Employment Rights Act 1996.



Your Employer must pay you your accrued holiday pay when you leave your job. If they don’t you will have a claim in the Employment Tribunal. This guide helps you craft your claim for non-payment of your holiday pay when you have left the job.
