This article reports that the employment appeals tribunal (EAT) in Great Britain has ruled that organisations are entitled to require that an employee working their notice period takes any accrued annual leave. Because the procedure for the notice period was spelled out in the contract, the EAT ruled this was binding. Employers involved in tribunals will again be named on a public list, after a ruling by the information commissioner.
