Asked to work during notice period even though owed holiday

DH handed in his one month's notice notice a couple of weeks ago and has 4 days holiday still owing He would rather tag the holiday to the end of his notice so that he leaves four days early.
However, his employer is insisting, due to "the needs of the business", that he works on one of these four days so in effect he will be off on Mon, Tues & Wed, work on Thursday and have Friday, his last day, off. Can they make him do this?

Yes, they should pay him the difference.

Yes they can. As long as he is employed by them, holiday days are at the discretion of the employer.
Its pretty mean of them though.

Yes. It is only like being at work and being refused holiday due to business demands. They do have to pay him for the holidays owed though.

Thank you for your replies. They will pay him for the holiday though I too think it's mean of them to make him come in on one of those days off angry
