‘Article 7 of Parliament and Council Directive 2003/88/EC of 4 November 2003 concerning certain aspects of the organisation of working time precluded national legislation or practice which provided that the entitlement to paid annual leave was lost without conferring entitlement to an allowance in lieu of leave outstanding, where the employment relationship was terminated by the death of the worker. Receipt of such an allowance was not dependent on a prior application.’
