Members in the NICS will receive payments backdated to April 2020 in their December Pay arising from the implementation of the Holiday Pay Temporary Arrangement Policy.

In practice this means that Holiday Pay entitlements will now be paid to staff who are entitled to payments going forward. It does not include the main retrospective payment (see below).

Management Side have produced a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS) Document which explains among other issues how holiday pay will be calculated and how this is recorded on staff payslips.

Should members have any queries they should contact their respective seconded offices
