Because employers are so greedy that they will try to cheat the dependents of an employees out of pay that they earned?

There should be a 10x penalty for this kind of shiat.  It's compensation that he earned through his employment.  How is there any question that it should be paid to his estate???  Did they also try to take back the money paid to his retirement fund?  I hope she contacts every other widow who had a spouse working for that company and tells them to go demand payment for unused holiday pay.  Farking scumbags.  And that's an insult to scum.  Sorry, scum.

As opposed to the US, where they won't even let you take a day off if you're dead.

Eh, the government is going to take a massive bite out of the money anyway....but that's okay, right?


Well yeah, because in Europe, you get healthcare, a reasonable amount of paid vacation, education, family leave, and so forth WITHOUT having to fight tooth and nail for them. You know, because they don't spend all their money subsidizing the most profitable industry the world has known, or ensuring tax dodges remain for billionaires, or feeding the ever-hungry military industrial complex.

Yes of course.

Only a complete moron on a cattle ranch doesn't understand the concept of taxes.

Particularly the Job Creating Small Business Owner Heroes (TM) who aren't bound by corporate policies and procedures.
The greediest, scummiest employers I've ever had have all been small businesses. From being consistently told rules for benefit eligibility have changed, to arbitrarily lowering my commission rate as a salesperson, to trying to weasel out of paying overtime, they were the worst. The big companies have HR departments that follow written procedures so as to cover their asses agains lawsuits.

"A German court had thrown out her case, relying on local law stipulating that when the employee dies, the employment contract is terminated."

When an employee is terminated the employment contract is also ended ... and you pay them for any outstanding vacation time.
