  • Something You Need to Know about the Vacation in Germany

    Employees in Germany are entitled to free time during statutory holidays, the weekends and paid leave vacations. In addition, they might have the right to days off in certain circumstances like a wedding, child birth or the death of a close relative. Germany is a federal state, so statutory holiday may differ between the states and even the communes. Common federal holidays are New Year (January 1), Good Friday, Easter Monday, Labor Day (May 1), Ascension Day, Pentecost, German Unity Day (October 3), Christmas (December 25) and Boxing Day (December 26). Besides this the German states depending on their religious tradition have additional holidays like Epiphany (January 6), Corpus Christi, Assumption of Mary (August 15), Reformation Day (October 30), All Saints (November 1) and Day of Repentance and Prayer. A local holiday is the Day remembering the Peace Treaty of Westphalia in Augsburg (August 8). Sundays and Saturdays are also days off. Minimum vacations are regulated in the Federal Vacation Act (Bundesurlaubgesetz). According to § 3 Sec. 1 of this Act the minimum vacation are 24 days per year. However, as this is counted on the basis of a six working days week that no longer applies, the number has to be adjusted to a five working days week. This means that the minimum vacation is 20 days per year. Minors or disabled persons have a higher statutory vacation claim. The claim for the whole 20 days is gained after a grace period of six months of the employment. In the first six months, the employee is entitled only to 1/12th of the 20 vacation days per month. However, it is common practice that the employee does not take any vacation within the first six months. On the other hand, it is also common practice that the employment agreement or collective labor agreements provide for more than 20 vacation days per year; 30 vacation days per year are quite common. The remuneration for a vacation day is the average daily salary excluding overtime hours of the last 13 weeks before the vacation. The employee should not work for another employer during the vacation as vacation should be free time to restore the health and the strength of the employee. If the employer does not want to grant the employee the vacation according to the employee’s vacation application, the employer needs to provide business reasons. However, the employer has to grant the vacation and cannot swap it into an additional payment. The vacation needs to be taken within the year it was occurred, at the latest until March 31 of the following year. If the employment ends and the employee still has a claim for unused vacation days that cannot be taken, the employer has to pay for each open vacation day. The claim is counted for each month the employee was employed with the final year of his or her employment. So, if the employee had a claim for 24 vacation days per year and his or her employment ended on June 30, his or her vacation claim in the last year was twelve vacation days. If the employee has taken only ten vacation days from January 1 to June 30, then he or she still has an open vacation claim of two days. The employer has to pay for these two open vacation days. The employee might also be entitled to paid days off in certain circumstances. This general rule is provided in § 616 of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch). Details are usually found in collective labor agreements, some employment agreements and case law. The death or serious illness of a spouse, a parent or child, own wedding, child birth of the wife and religious duties are considered special circumstances that entitle the employee to paid days off.

  • A Brief Introduction of Holidays in North East Asia

    Written by Yi-Ting Lin In many European countries, no matter how long an employee serves in a company, he/she is entitled to a fixed (and usually long!) term of paid holidays. However, in North East Asia, it is not the case. When an employee starts to work for a company, he/she can only enjoy a limited number of paid holidays. However, the it will increase as an employee keeps working for the same company. Here is a list of paid holidays an employee who serves in a company for one year can enjoy: How many days of paid holidays accumulated per year and the maximum number of paid holidays vary from one country to another. For example, in Hong Kong, after an employee works in a company for two years, his/her annual paid holidays will increase one day each year (e.g. an employee who stays in a company for three years can enjoy eight days of paid holidays per year; while an employee who stays in a company for four years can enjoy nine days of paid holidays per year), until it is increased to 14 days. On the other hand, in South Korea, the number will be increased at a rate of one day per two years, until it is increased to 25 days. Of course, just like other jurisdictions, what we talked about is just the minimum requirement stipulated in laws. Companies are free to give their employees more paid holidays to attract talent. In addition, unlike Europe, employees in the Mandarin-speaking region in North East Asia[1] can cash out their unused paid holidays. This probably reflects the different attitudes towards work life balance between these two regions. We also bring you to the attention that, in Hong Kong, even though employees can cash out the unused paid holidays, he/she should at least use 10 days of paid holidays per year. Those 10 days cannot be exchanged for monetary compensation. Besides paid holidays which employees can enjoy freely, there are also different rules about national holidays in different areas. Take Christmas for example, is Christmas a national holiday – which is the case in most western countries – in North East Asia? Due to the cultural difference, except for South Korea and Hong Kong, Christmas isn’t a national holiday in other jurisdictions in North East Asia. For many westerners who study or work in North East Asia, it is a big surprise for them. If they still want to fully enjoy Christmas holiday, they have no choice but to use their own paid holidays.
