Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Had you already booked the time off when you went off sick?
well there has been a lot of case law around this which eventually decided that those employees who are on long term sick leave not only continue to accrue holidays whilst off sick but if they are unable to take holidays because are off sick should be allowed to carry that holiday over or take it another time when they are not off. You can get further details here and can use this to show the employer:http://www.lewissilkin.com/Knowledge/2012/July/Workers-falling-ill-on-holiday-can-reschedule-annual-leave.aspx#.UuvviRB_sRo
so I shoud get holidays back...
you should be allowed to take them at a different time when you are not off sick
thanks that is what I thought...
You are welcome
