Temporary unemployment corona no longer equals time worked for annual leave in 2021

Author: Catherine Legardien (Legal Expert)
Date:

Days of temporary unemployment due to force majeure caused by the coronavirus were treated as days actually worked for entitlement to annual leave until 31 December 2020. It is not currently planned to extend this measure to 2021.

State of affairs in 2020

As a reminder, for the period from 1 February until 31 December 2020, the days of work interruption resulting from temporary unemployment due to force majeure following the pandemic caused by the coronavirus for (manual and non-manual) workers who have been recognised as temporary unemployed due to force majeure are treated as days actually worked for the calculation of the holiday pay and the holiday duration.

This means that the days of temporary unemployment due to force majeure caused by the coronavirus in 2020 have no negative impact on the number of days of leave and holiday pay to which the employee is entitled in 2021.

And in 2021?

At present, it is not provided for to treat the days of temporary unemployment due to force majeure caused by the coronavirus declared in 2021 as days actually worked for entitlement to annual leave.
