Holiday pay on termination clause Employees frequently leave employment having taken more annual leave than they’ve accrued during the holiday year and it’s safe to assume that you’ll want to recoup the excess from any final salary payment due. However, without a holiday pay on termination clause, you can’t do this. No clause, no deduction In the absence of an express agreement to deduct the value of excess holiday from final salary, you cannot make such a deduction.
