Workers are under the Holiday Allowance Act no. 30/1987 entitled to a holiday allowance (paid holiday) consistent with holiday rights accrued during the past holiday allowance year. The minimum holiday allowance added to wages is 10.17% of total wages. In addition collective agreements provide for the payment by employers of a fixed Holiday bonus payable from 1 May to 15 August. Those who work part-time or only a part of the year receive these premiums proportionally.
The Act recognises various methods according to which the right to holiday allowance is protected.
