Company failure to provide employee with right to paid holiday as a worker

By January 16, 2018Uncategorized

In King vs The Sash Windows Workshop Ltd, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that Mr King, who had established ‘worker’ status, was entitled to pay for both unpaid holiday he had taken and holiday he did not take because he thought it would be unpaid.

Unlike holiday, which carries over during sick leave and can be lost after a certain period, the ECJ found that there was no time limit on the untaken leave that had accrued because of the company’s failure to provide King with his right to paid holiday as a worker. King could claim untaken leave for his 13 years’ engagement. The Court of Appeal will now decide whether the ECJ judgment is consistent with UK law.
