In this month’s ‘Commercial Law for Employers’ article, Kevin McVeigh, Partner and Head of the Corporate and Commercial Department in EDG Solicitors, considers the CJEU case of Tribunalul Botosani v Maria Dicu regarding entitlement to paid annual leave. The case considers whether periods of parental leave should be treated as periods of “actual work” for the purposes of calculating annual leave entitlement. 

Kevin also considers Sebastian Kreuziger v Land Berlin, a case that has serious implications for the so-called ‘use it or lose it’ provisions of the Working Time Regulations 1998, which can see employees losing any untaken annual leave.
