Holiday Pay Update 12/09/2014

HOLIDAY PAY UPDATE
12th September, 2014

We placed an advert on June 19th, 2014 in the national press to highlight the importance of seeking early advice about holiday pay claims. Following a great deal of hard work and preparation over the summer we are now acting for over 1000 clients. We have also engaged an expert QC and received a detailed Legal Opinion.

Fox and Partners this month received a further award as Employment Firm of the Year 2014. Our holiday pay campaign is headed by Mr. Brian McLaughlin, Accredited Specialist in Employment Law from the Law Society of Scotland. We are all practising solicitors in Scotland with a strong reputation of delivering successful outcomes.   We are working in partnership with Quantum Claims Limited – a reputable firm with extensive experience in employment law.

This holiday pay campaign is an entirely new and developing area of the law.   We will apply our experience and expertise to protect your legal interests and to obtain the best possible outcome of your case. It is important that you act early to protect your legal position. It is equally important that you do not settle for a fraction of what your case may be worth. We already have a dedicated ACAS officer to progress our cases now in the system. If you have received our Letter of Engagement please follow the steps outlined. We will post regular updates and write directly to you if there are developments in your case.

There are a number of claims companies now seeking to run legal cases about holiday pay. As an established law firm regulated by the Law Society of Scotland we offer greater protection for all our clients and always seek to provide the highest level of professional services.   We are ensuring full access to justice by covering Employment Tribunal fees without asking our clients to take out loans to cover the fees. We are able to take on cases on a No Win No Fee basis in conjunction with Quantum Claims.

If you would like a second opinion on any holiday pay query or offer made to you now or in the future please contact 0131 652 7360 for expert advice.
