Note that “termination” is not a necessary condition for granting paid annual leave. An employer is obliged to make the payment of unused paid annual leave in all circumstances of termination of an employment contract, including by reciprocal cancellation agreement. The parties sign three copies of the initial agreement: one for the employer and employee and the other for the employment services. This is an essential condition for the courts; If a worker can prove that he did not receive an original copy, the dismissal is void (Cass Soc, March 7, 2018, No. 17-10.963). The employment services only check the deadlines and amounts of the mutual cancellation agreement. .
