my partner found this on the BBC news website:  Sick leave staff win holiday case

seeing as i left work about May 2006 and was not paid for holidays i did not take that year, never mind since then, i would be looking at quite a lot of holiday pay!!!! Of course it would never happen and also i think not really fair on my employers who are only keeping me on the books at this point so i can continue to benefit from their HPI scheme… but it made me smile!
