The JIB-PMES Holiday Credit Scheme

The Holiday Pay Scheme is designed to deliver and fund the holiday pay entitlement required under the JIB-PMES National Working Rule Agreement, and also to comply with the requirements of the 1998 Working Time Regulations. The scheme is available to all Employers in the industry, employing both hourly paid and salaried, site and office staff. The Holiday Pay Scheme covers 30 days holiday which includes 8 Public Holidays (Bank Holidays).

By joining the Holiday Pay Scheme you will be bound at all times to comply with the JIB-PMES NWR’s. To help with business cash-flow you will be required to purchase a Weekly Holiday Credit per Employee, this will be calculated and invoiced on a monthly basis, thus spreading the cost of JIB-PMES Holiday Pay and Benefits Package over the full year (Total Credits 60). The JIB will send you a statement every month listing the employees in the scheme and the value of credits for each individual
