Holidays linked to length of service

Holidays linked to length of service

Didn't find your answer?

My company is looking at linking annual holiday leave to the length of time employed with the company, can anybody provide me with some examples of what their holiday structure is in relation to length of service?
Thanks

I have experienced a number of different variations on additional holidays linked to service.

Most offer additional holiday after 5 years service. the amount varies and will of course depend on the basic allowance.

One retailer I worked for gave a basic 25 days holiday with and additional 1 day after 5 years service, 3 days after 10 years service and 5 days after 15 years service. many felt that 1 day after 5 years was a small reward for loyality however on top of a comparatively generous 25 days it was reasonable compared with many other companies.

Many of the smaller companies that I have worked with only offer a basic 20 days holiday and therefore offer two or three extra days after 5 years. Apart from Local government I have not come across anyone who offers more than 5 days service related holiday.

The Authority I work for starts with a basic allowance of 22 days and then adds one day per year up to a maximum of 28 days (6 years). Staff also receive 1 etra day after 10 years and another extra day after 15 years service making a total of 30 days

I work for a small private firm and we have recently introduced holiday entitlement that increases with service. The base line is 23 days (this was the entitlement for all staff). Once an employee has 2 full calendar years service, this increases to 25, then by a further day a year up to 28 days.

Our staff tend to either stay with the company for many years, or turnover within 1 to 2 years (sales staff) - hence the 2 calendar year increase.

My organisation works on completed months of service (part months don't count), with 1, 2, and 2 days for each quarter,giving 20 days per annum,plus Public Holidays. Leave year starts 1st April/ends 31st March. Eligibility for additional holidays, is on basis completed years of service at 1st April (part years don't count). Initially office closure at Christmas (3 days)has to be taken out of annual entitlement. After 2 years, extra 3 days given to cover Christmas closure. Then after 5 years, 1 extra day/year for each of next 5 years, giving a maximum of 28 days after 9 years service. Proposed to change to personal anniversary date, rather than common date of 1st April, to overcome problem of some staff have to wait nearly 12 months longer, than their peers.

Our company policy states staff are entitled to 22 days holiday p.a.(exc. Public Holidays). 3 days for the Christmas period are to be taken out of the annual holiday entitlement. Staff holiday is calculated on part months of joining the company on pro rata basis of 22 days p.a. Staff are alco entitled to accrue 1 additional days holiday for every complete year, to a maximum of 27 days. (Starting holiday entitlement is 22 days).
Where staff have reached 5 years of service, they will be entitled to a lump sum of 5 additional days holiday. Another 5 days entitlement for 10 years service. These extra days can be taken anytime during 6th - 10th year of service.

I hope this is useful.
