Employers can't force employees to take annual leave when they're eligible for sick leave.


Any statutory holiday entitlement that isn't used because of illness can be carried over into the next leave year. If an employee is ill just before or during their holiday, they can take it as sick leave instead.


An employee can ask to take their paid holiday for the time they're off work sick. They might do this if they don't qualify for sick pay, for example. Any rules relating to sick leave will still apply.
