Hi, I've been off work sick since October last year (long story) and have decided to relocate and hand my notice in. I was told at my absence review meeting that if they dismissed me on medical grounds I would receive my holiday pay for this financial year, what I want to know is: am i still entitled to this holiday pay if I hand my notice in rather than waiting for them to dismiss me?
Haha, no they haven't been paying me while I've been off. I've been off unpaid and nobody has replaced me (except over Xmas). I've decided to leave because my medical condition prevents me from doing my job anymore and it's kind of just jumping before I'm pushed.
technically I do think they would have to pay you any accrued holiday, but you would need to check with your HR dept what the policy is, with some companies you would stop accruing holidays after a certain amount of sick leave, esp unpaid. else speak to ACAS - www.acas.co.uk
