All wage earners are entitled to at least two days of holiday for each month of employment during the holiday year ( from May 1st to April the 30th ). The minimum holiday entitlement is therefore 24 days a year, based on full-time job ratio. Employees must consult with their employer when to take time off work.
The employer defrays, at minimum, 10.17 % of the wages on to a separate bank account which is in the employee’s name. This amount substitutes wages when the employer takes time off work due to a summer holiday.
If the employee becomes sick while s/he is on her/his summer holiday, the sick days do not count as vacation days and therefore do not subtract from the number of days the employee is entitled to. If illness does occur during summer holiday the employee must submit a health certificate when s/he returns to work. The employee must exploit the days s/he got left before 31st of May the following year.
