Employee entitled to payment of holiday accrued between dismissal and reinstatement

A comment by Francesco Pedroni for ILO – International Law Office, on the recent decision issued by the Italian Supreme Court 6319/2021 (8 March 2021) which, recalling the ECJ’s principle that the right to paid annual leave cannot be interpreted restrictively, changed its ruling and stated that the period between the date of the unlawful dismissal and the date of reinstatement must be treated as a period of actual work for the purposes of determining entitlement to annual leave and holiday.
