Restriction on holiday pay for sick workers

The reason for this is because the European Directive, which is implemented in the UK by the Working Time Regulations, only provides for a basic entitlement to 4 weeks leave with no carry-over of leave into the next year if the employee cannot take it because of illness. So unless a contract provides for the carry-over of annual leave, the most a sick employee or worker can claim is the statutory 4 weeks.
