Holiday pay back in the ECJ

On 29 March 2017 the ECJ is to hear oral submissions on this issue in King v The Sash Window Workshop, referred to it by the Court of Appeal. The case is likely to be particularly significant for businesses operating in the gig economy whose staff are labelled as self-employed.
