    East Riding of Yorkshire Council v Gibson [2000] IRLR 598 CA (0 other reports)

The provisions of the Working Time Directive relating to minimum paid annual leave are not sufficiently precise to have direct effect, holds the Court of Appeal in East Riding of Yorkshire Council v Gibson 21.6.00 Court of Appeal. The right to four weeks' paid annual leave, which a council worker wished to assert against her employer, is not sufficiently defined in those provisions to be directly enforceable by an individual in national courts and tribunals.
