In Armstrong v Walter Scott Motors (London) Ltd, the EAT holds that an employee was reasonably clear in asserting his statutory right to paid holiday entitlement under the Working Time Regulations 1998 when he pointed out to his employer that, contrary to what the company staff handbook said, he should not be forced to wait a year before being entitled to take paid holiday, and that this requirement in the handbook was "morally indefensible in this day and age".
