Employment Law Advice - Long Term Sickness
Workers who have been on
sick leave for more than a year are now entitled

formally requested it a court has ruled.
This is bad news for employers because
businesses face workers returning from long-term

on case law to prevent sick workers from
carrying over statuatary holiday.
