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.
The employer continues to pay wages during the employee’s holiday.
