Pavement Licence Guidance


The temporary pavement licences process introduces a streamlined consent route to allow businesses to obtain a licence to place removable furniture, such as tables and chairs outside of cafes, bars and restaurants quickly, and for no more than £100.

The Government has now published guidance on what is and is not allowed etc. See https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/pavement-licences-draft-guidance?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=govuk-notifications-topic&utm_source=04b61471-fa60-43af-9248-3ad242d585e9&utm_content=daily

Supreme Court Ruling On Holiday Pay

The Supreme Court has published its judgement on Harpur Trust v Brazel, which has significant implications for the hospitality industry. At a very basic level, this judgement is on how businesses should calculate holiday pay entitlements for part time, part year and zero hours contract staff.

Some businesses currently calculate holiday pay on what is generally called a pro-rata basis whereby, any whole week in which no pay was received is included holiday reference period for the calculation of Holiday Pay. Rather, the Supreme Court has ruled that businesses should use the Calendar Week Method in which weeks when the employee was not working are excluded from this calculation.
