What are the rules with respect to vacation days?
According to Dutch law the employee is entitled to vacation days with a statutory minimum of four times the weekly working days. That is 20 days for an employee working five days a week. Parties often agree on more days than the statutory minimum. In general employers offer 24 or 25 vacation days. If a Collective Labour Agreement (CAO) is applicable this agreement can determine how many vacation days the employee is entitled to.
