Goodman Derrick's Clare Gilroy-Scott has been named the lawyer of the week in The Times for her work pro bono on behalf of the Sash Window Workshop salesman Conley King in the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU).
Clare Gilroy-Scott, a partner at Goodman Derrick, acted pro bono for the Sash Window Workshop salesman Conley King in the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU). It ruled that he is entitled, as a “worker”, to carry over and claim holiday pay that he was denied over 13 years. What were the main challenges? In the CJEU — with the barrister James Williams, of Henderson Chambers, working to put the strongest case forward while limited to 15 minutes of oral submissions. And earlier, grappling with calculation of a holiday pay schedule of loss for periods of holiday not taken, for a worker who earned commission only.
