Supreme Court refuses permission to appeal in Lock v British Gas


The Supreme Court has refused permission to appeal against the Court of Appeal’s decision in British Gas Trading Ltd v Lock [2017] ICR 1.  In this leading holiday pay case, British Gas wished to challenge the Court of Appeal’s decision that the Working Time Regulations could be interpreted as incorporating the requirement to include commission as part of “normal pay” for payments in respect of annual leave.  Mr Lock has been represented since 2012 at the ET, EAT, CA and ECJ by Michael Ford QC, Simon Cheetham and Victoria Webb, instructed by Unison.
