Does an employee continue to accrue annual leave if they fall ill or are asked to stand down?

Does an employee continue to accrue annual leave if they fall ill or are asked to stand down? Tudor Musat

On the face of the WTR (Working Time Regulations Act) 1998, it appears that statutory leave accrues during a sabbatical, which would also apply if you were to stand down at work but remain employed. 

So long as the individual remains a worker, then their holidays will accrue.

This is why set holidays are so important and flexible leave is discouraged.
