didn't realize that the US doesn't offer mandatory paid vacation, yikes, you guys need to chill out a bit.
How many paid vacation days do you get? which country are you in?
A month. sometimes more, depends on the job. Holland..
unlimited. doesn't track sick or personal days either. united states.
i pay for my own vacations - united states
5 weeks (25 working days). Switzerland
2 weeks paid.
1 week paid... I have petitioned for an extra week at my job, to no avail
30 days paid - UK
was 35, now 365
10 days paid - Argentina
3 weeks paid vacation, 2 weeks paid sick time, USA
25 days paid in Germany, plus public holidays. Which is far and away a better deal than I ever got in Canada, before moving to Europe.
2 weeks paid and 1 week sick - USA
(3 weeks paid after 2 years i think)
depends on how long with company
@ capn_ron only one week?
What if get seriously ill like MS or cancer? does the gov cover that if you arent be able to work?
- no. If you get sick over 5 days, you have to use your vacation until it runs out and then you don't get paid.capn_ron
- when it comes to a serious sickness like cancer or MS I don't know if insurance kicks in.capn_ron
- That goes into long-term disability which varies depending on insurance and such.hereswhatidid
paid vacations happen if you're with a company (sometimes +28hrs) for a bit over 6 months.
In the US, you get a salary and are allowed to take two weeks off plus some sick days and not have anything happen to that salary.
In Europe, how much time can you take off at one time? Can you really disappear for a month if you want?
some academic staff in the UK get 40 days paid leave
2 weeks paid vacation
1 week paid sick time
1 paid personal day
- so, when having a very bad flu for two weeks you are fucked.sureshot
- I guess missing out one week is a lot of cash.sureshot
- around a grand, yeah. and i take a ton of unpaid time off beyond that for all my festivalsscarabin
- really the only reason i'm still at this shop is because they put up with me doing that all the timescarabin
In the UK by law it's 28 days, but this can include bank holidays by employer discretion, and it usually does in most places.
