The scheduling of annual leave is done by the employer, in agreement with the employees' representatives and is mandatory for both the employer and the employee. When scheduling annual vacations, the desire of employees is taken into account, as well as the need to ensure the proper functioning of the unit. The following conditions shall be observed when scheduling annual rest leave:
- the leave will be planned for each employee, so that once every 3 years it coincides with the summer season;
- spouses working in the same unit are entitled to leave at the same time.
The employer is obliged to warn the employee, in writing, about the date of starting the annual rest leave at least 14 calendar days in advance.
In case of postponement of the annual rest leave in connection with the employee being on sick leave, his fulfillment of a state duty or in other cases provided by law, the employer and the employee will agree on a new period of granting it.
