I have a query regarding Working Time Regulations and Holidays. One of our Managers still has 22 days holiday left. Our holiday year runs from April to March, as a policy we offer staff an opportunity to carry up to 5 days over but anything over that which isn’t used they lose.

I know under the Working Time Regulations employees have the right for 4 weeks paid holiday per year, but he is saying he is too busy to take it.

I am concerned that he hasn’t had a holiday apart from our Christmas shutdown which he had a week and 3 days off.

He works at height for some of his job so I am worried from a Health and Safey point of view that he is over tired, as over Christmas he was poorly.

I am just after some advice on what we can do as an Employer, can we make him take holiday? What are our other options?
