Reports relating to this case:

  • Paid annual leave: Right to payment for untaken annual leave survives death of worker

    Date:
    11 December 2014

    In Bollacke v K+K Klaas & Kock BV & Co KG [2014] IRLR 732 ECJ, the ECJ held that the Working Time Directive prevents the entitlement to pay for accrued but untaken leave being lost on the death of the relevant worker. In addition, the right to claim payment in respect of such accrued but untaken leave does not attach to the person of the worker who has died, but can be claimed by the worker's estate.
