The employer must grant any vacation that has not yet been granted after parental leave in the current or next vacation year (§ 17 Para. 2 BEEG/BErzGG). The regulation ensures that taking parental leave does not lead to the forfeiture of recreational leave. In its judgment of May 20, 2008 (9 AZR 219/07), the Ninth Senate abandoned its old case law on Section 17 Para. 2 BErzGG and decided that the entitlement to convalescent leave that arose before a first parental leave extends to the period after a further parental leave is transferred if this immediately follows the previous parental leave. If the employment relationship ends during the later parental leave or is not continued after it, the vacation entitlement transferred in accordance with Section 17 Paragraph 2 BErzGG/BEEG is converted into a claim to compensation in accordance with Section 17 Paragraph 3 BErzGG/BEEG.
