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.
