Vacation Carry Over & Transfer

Due to the pandemic, one thing employers are having to contend with as they re-open is the influx of vacation time requests.  Due to the uncertainty of the time we are in, employers need to make sure they are complying with ESA and the most up to date legislation.

How does vacation time work?

Employees earn a minimum of two weeks of vacation time upon completion of every 12-month vacation entitlement year. After 5 years of employment the minimum requirement is 15 days.

If you have questions on:

• How long an employee can carry over vacation time?
