Although the manager should know the situation, it doesn't seem unreasonable that he needs to consult. Is it a small firm where they don't have a very sophisticated HR Department? Have you had a response yet? How long ago did you ask about this?

Holidays can be protected during sickness,  I don't know the exact rules. 

 

What do your contract or employee booklet say?

 

HB


Illegitimi non carborundum

See this:

 

..., employees continue to build up their holiday entitlements while they are off sick, but don't have to take their holiday during that time. They can carry it over to the next year if they haven't been able to take holiday while sick.

Yep, you are entitlesd to the same holiday as you would get normally. If you ask for holiday and are refused it then come back here, they may be able to pay you in lieu if you cant take it for their refusal to let you for "operational reasons".
