Work: Benefits Offered By Employers

Vacations And Holidays

Next » « Previous


Paid Holidays: Most employers offer time off with full pay for the major national and some local holidays.

  • Employers typically offer 8 to 12 days off per year for such holidays as Christmas, Thanksgiving, Labor Day, Independence Day, Memorial Day, President's Day, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Paid Vacation: Most employers allow employees paid time off for vacation. Each employer sets the rules and the number of days for such time off.

  • A typical vacation schedule will allow employees who have completed one year of service to receive a vacation of ten paid work days off each calendar year. The amount of vacation time usually increases the more years an employee stays with an employer.
  • Sometimes, vacations will be prohibited or restricted during the employer's busy season if there is one.
  • Employers set their own rules on whether or not vacation may be accumulated and carried over from year to year.
  • Vacation generally "vests." This means that unlike sick leave and paid holidays, if you leave your employer for any reason including to go on disability, you are entitled to receive compensation for accumulated and unused vacation time.
