Employee who was Sick for a Year Entitled to Rely on Unfair deductions to Obtain Holiday Pay

In the light of the ECJ and House of Lords judgment in Stringer & ors v HMRC [2009] ICR 985 an employment tribunal at Sheffield has now held that an employee who was off work sick for the whole of a holiday year was entitled to holiday pay as a wrongful deduction from wages.

There is now available on the emplaw web-site a transcript of the Sheffield Employment Tribunal's January 2010 judgment in Rawlings v The Direct Garage Door Company Ltd.
