I work for a group home, which means zero. We have the kids 365 days a year, so someone has to be with them. We do have a decent vacation plan, although we are not allowed to take our vacation during the major holidays.

We get 11. You can only take them (5 prescheduled) on the days you are normally scheduled to work. If you aren't scheduled to work on those days, you have them off anyway and can use your paid time on another day during the year. Roll that in with my 22 days of Vacation time and 6 sick days and I make a pretty decent year of not working when I don't want to :)

@capguncowboy: That sounds excellent. I get a measely 2 weeks vacation and our sicks days are a joke (accrue 1/2 day per month, up to 6 per year).

We do get the day before or day after if holidays fall on the weekend, but I would rather have it your way.

12...It's great to work at an institute of higher learning.

And that's if they don't furlough us! Does it get any better?

@capguncowboy:

We have similar policies: "For Holidays falling on a Saturday or Sunday when you are scheduled to work, take holiday on that Saturday or Sunday instead of the day listed on the chart or an unscheduled day. Those normally scheduled to be off on an observed holiday falling on a weekday will receive an unscheduled day in lieu of that day, unless required to work on the holiday."

In addition to the holidays, I get 25 vacation days & 20 sick days each year (doled out in monthly installments, so I get 2 days & 35 minutes of vacation time each month, as a "day" is seven hours).

Between vacation & holidays, my group of 4.5 people is barely 3.75 people on average, and even less when people use sick leave. I was able to use this to get our Project Management Group to reduce my group's quota, though not by much.

0: I'm a stay at home mom and I own my own business. No time to be sick.

But... when I was working for the man, we got 6 (memorial, labor, thanksgiving, christmas, 4th of july, new years) + 2 floaters... and then 14 combination vacation/sick days. And no such thing as overtime or comp time.

I work in my own small business. I have never had a day off in my entire career. I have never had a vacation. I'm not complaining, it has simply never happened. I work every day, 365 days a year.

12 days here for Holidays, lots of sick days, and currently at 15 vacation days.

vote-for2vote-against

Looks like I get a total of 9 PTO days:
New Years Eve
New Years Day
Memorial Day
Independence Day
Labor Day
Thanksgiving Day
Friday after Thanksgiving
Christmas Eve
Christmas Day

Going a bit further, since my time worked extends through merger, I keep my 5 years. So I get 120hrs of PTO and 48 hours of sick days per year.

This year will be interesting as I had 180 hours (Maxed) of PTO roll over + the 120 hours I get this year + 48hrs of sick days = 348 hours / hour per day = 43.5 days /5 business days per week = 8.7 weeks. I could take November and December off :D

I get off six holidays New Year's Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas day and New Years Day. Similar to others if your regularly scheduled day off falls on a holiday you can take a floater within 30 days or if hourly I think you can take it as a double pay day.

Our benefit time is pretty decent, though. This year I got 120 hours of vacation, 40 of personal and 48 of sick. I'm also going to try to take more of it during the nice months, as I wasn't a huge fan of taking 4 random days off in December.

I get 11 holidays (pre-determined, no floaters), 5 personal/sick days, and 2 weeks vacation. I think I'm pretty darn lucky, as I haven't even been working there for a year, yet! :) Before that I was a stay-at-home/work-at-home mom, and so no paid holidays.

I work for one lawyer, and the other support staff in the building work for a different firm. They have the same holidays, but have unlimited sick days. They get more vacation, too, but they've worked there for between 7-40 years, so a bit longer than me.
