Holidays and Absences

Yearly holidays

Employees and workers will enjoy a legal minimum of 4 weeks of paid holidays a year, in addition to 8 days of national holidays.


In some workplaces, employers allow all employees to enjoy their holidays but in other workplaces employees may take a day off in lieu of public holidays.


You must check your labour contract, the staff manual or talk to your trade union representative to know what your rights are.
