The ECJ has ruled that when a worker increases their hours, any statutory annual leave that has already accrued does not need to be recalculated retrospectively to take account of the increased working hours. However, going forward, leave entitlement should be recalculated to reflect the new working pattern. Any leave taken in excess of the entitlement that applied under the previous working pattern should be deducted from the leave going forward.
