At Staffice, we believe that vacation is an essential part of a healthy work-life balance. That’s why we offer you the opportunity to decide what you want to do with your extra vacation days, known as “bovenwettelijke vakantiedagen” (days exceeding the legal minimum). But what exactly are these additional vacation days?
Legal vacation days are the days you are entitled to by law, based on the number of hours you work. In the Netherlands, this typically amounts to 20 vacation days per year for full-time employees. These days are meant for relaxation, recharging, and spending quality time with your loved ones. Taking legal vacation days as time off is a legal requirement and cannot be paid out.
On the other hand, bovenwettelijke vakantiedagen are the days that go beyond the legal minimum. These are the vacation days you have in addition to the 20 days mentioned earlier. At Staffice, we give you the freedom to decide how you want to use these days. Do you want to use them for a well-deserved vacation? Absolutely! But if you prefer to receive some extra money, we offer the option to have your bovenwettelijke vakantiedagen paid out, in addition to your salary.
Why is it possible to have bovenwettelijke vakantiedagen paid out at Staffice?
Because we believe in flexibility and customization. We understand that everyone has different needs and priorities. By providing this choice, we give you control over your own vacation policy.
At Staffice, our goal is to make your work experience as positive and personalized as possible. So what are you waiting for? Take charge and decide what you want to do with your bovenwettelijke vakantiedagen!
