Ogier has taken a test case to the Employment Tribunal to clarify the law on annual leave entitlement for employees on long term sick leave. 

In a judgment released earlier this month the Tribunal held that staff who are unable to take statutory annual leave due to serious ill health are entitled to carry over that leave to the next holiday year.
