Holiday entitlement accrues despite sick leave
Submit Articles Back to Articles
26 June 2009
In the case of Stringer v HM Revenue and Customs (2009), the
House of Lords confirmed that entitlement to paid holiday continues to accrue
during long-term sick leave.
The House of Lords also confirmed that an employee who is
unable, due to sickness, to take all of their holiday entitlement must be
allowed to carry over that holiday to the next year and take it when they are
well enough on their return to work, or be paid in lieu if the contract of
employment is terminated.
