Holiday entitlement carries over when employer refuses to pay for it

June 14, 2017


 The Advocate General has held that a worker’s paid holiday entitlement carries over to subsequent years if they do not take holiday because their employer refuses to pay them.

Where a worker does not use their entitlement to paid holiday because they would not be paid by their employer, the worker can claim he was prevented from exercising his right to such paid leave. The right then carries over until the worker has had the opportunity to exercise it – in this case on termination of employment.

The worker does not have to ask to take his leave first before being able to establish whether he is entitled to be paid for it, because the risk of not being paid for the leave would be a deterrent to taking it.
