Vacation

Vacation allows you time away from work to relax, travel and enjoy time with family. If your absence is due to an illness or injury, you should refer to the Sick Time [1] page.

Entitlement

You will earn two (2) weeks of Vacation time for every fifty (50) continuous weeks worked. According to the normal schedule a complete Vacation period includes ten (10) working days. Each week comprises forty (40) hours of effective paid working time. Therefore, you will accrue 6.67 hours of Vacation time each month for a total of eighty (80) hours (2 weeks).

You may only take Vacation if you have accrued Vacation time. You are not permitted to take Vacation based on future Vacation accruals.

Vacation that has accrued but has not been used will be accumulated up to a maximum of one hundred and sixty (160) hours; once one hundred and sixty (160) hours of accrued but unused Vacation has been accumulated, you will be directed to schedule Vacation as soon as possible.

You will be encouraged to submit Vacation plans to your manager as soon as you accumulate two (2) weeks (80 hours), no later than the end of the following calendar quarter.

If your Vacation is cancelled or interrupted, additional Vacation time should be planned and scheduled immediately.
