Employees who fall sick during their annual leave have the right to re-take that annual leave a later date, irrespective of when they fell ill, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has ruled today. The ECJ stated that “the purpose of entitlement to paid annual leave is to enable the worker to rest and enjoy a period of relaxation and leisure.

Employers have been warned to prepare for pensions auto-enrolment “as soon as possible” after research found that nearly half (44%) of organisations had taken no steps to get ready for its introduction. The research, from benefits consultancy Jelf Employee Benefits, also found that, while 42% of employers had made some progress towards getting ready for auto-enrolment, just 31% said they felt prepared for it. This is only a marginal improvement on the number that felt prepared in a similar study carried out by the consultancy last year, when 29.5% of employers reported that they felt ready. Steve Herbert, head of benefits strategy at Jelf Employee Benefits, warned that employers need to start preparing for pensions auto-enrolment sooner rather than later. “We are very concerned about the number of employers that still appear to be in denial about this issue,” he said. Half of employers have not prepared for pensions auto-enrolment
