My employer has terminated my employment following a lengthy period of sickness absence. My employer has said that I’m not entitled to any payment in lieu of accrued untaken holiday for the last holiday year as I was not entitled to carry it over. Is this right?

My employer has terminated my employment following a lengthy period of sickness absence. My employer has said that I’m not entitled to any payment in lieu of accrued untaken holiday for the last holiday year as I was not entitled to carry it over. Is this right?

Even if your contract of employment says that there is no right to carry over accrued untaken holiday leave from one holiday year to the next, or it is silent on this point, you may still be able to be paid for your statutory minimum holiday entitlement (up to 28 days including public and bank holidays for full time workers per year).

Our employment solicitors would be happy to help you.
