The district court of Pirkanmaa has ordered an art supplies shop in Tampere to pay unpaid holiday compensation to an employee dismissed during their trial period.

The district court of Pirkanmaa has ordered an art supplies shop in Tampere to pay unpaid holiday compensation to an employee dismissed during their trial period.

The salesperson, who worked part-time in the art supplies shop, was dismissed during their trial period and left without holiday compensation. The salesperson took the matter to court, where the process was dealt with as a written procedure at the district court of Pirkanmaa.

According to the employer, holiday compensation was included in the wages paid for the hours worked, but the pay slips show that the employee had not been paid holiday compensation for the severance period.

The district court rejected the employer’s claims that holiday compensation was included in the basic pay, and ordered the employer to pay missing holiday compensation of € 59.24 with late payment interest.

“Although the sum due is small, this case shows that PAM offers members a legal service in all situations”, comments PAM’s lawyer Henry Vähtäri.

“The range of disputes handled by PAM is wide. We aim to deal with each case as well as possible from the member’s point of view”, Vähtäri summarises.
