Shah v First West Yorkshire Ltd - sickness and holidays
An employment tribunal has ruled that employees can carry over annual leave to the next year if they were too ill to take it.
This is a note from the Institute of Leadership and Management on the Leeds tribunal case of Shah v First West Yorkshire Ltd.
Mr Shah broke his ankle and took three months off work. He had booked four weeks leave within that 3 month period. He wanted to reschedule his holiday but his employer refused as this meant it would fall into the next holiday year.
