The law says that employees with normal working hours are entitled to overtime pay as part of their holiday pay calculations when employed for "more than a fixed number of hours in a week or other period". The Court of Appeal held that the effect of this was to equate "normal working hours" with hours that are "'fixed' by the contract of employment, whether or not including overtime". Therefore, guaranteed (obligatory) overtime would count as normal working hours and be included, whereas optional (not-guaranteed) overtime hours would unfortunately be excluded.
