  • Abstract

      The French Supreme Court has recently ruled on two cases concerning paid annual leave. In the first case, the Supreme Court held that an employee whose employment contract is suspended due to an illness, whether of occupational origin or not, continues to acquire paid annual leave rights during this period (Supreme Court, 13 September 2023, no. 22-17.340). In the second case, the Court held that the acquisition of paid annual leave rights due to occupational illness or accident is not limited to one year (Supreme Court, 13 September 2023, no. 22-17.638).
