academic libs. i'm curious - how many prov/state/federal holidays do you get? how many vacation days?
15 holidays per year and I get 20 vacation days. Only 12 month faculty status and staff get vacation time. I'm trying to find where it's listed who gets how many - it's based on how long you've been at the institution. ETA: 12 month faculty get 15 days their first year and 1 extra day per year (up to 20) starting in year 2. http://www.belmont.edu/hr... - ~Courtney F
14 holidays per year, and either 22 or 25 vacation days, I'm not sure. ETA: oh yes, like jambina, we are also closed btw Xmas and New Years and paid for those days. - Meg VMeg
24 holidays this year, but that was up from past years (19 or so; we got fall break and spring break this year). I'm currently earning 18 days of vacation (started at 15). - Kirsten
12 holidays per year, and I accrue vacation at the max: 1.75 days per month, plus 1 extra annually. So 21 vacation days and 12 holidays = the equivalent of 6.5 weeks of paid discretionary leave. (New employees accrue at 1.25 days/month, then 1.5, then 1.75.) - Jenica
12 official paid holidays, Faculty (we are faculty members) members working on a fiscal-year (12-month) basis accrue 21 working days of vacation time a year, Faculty members on fiscal year appointments of less-than-full-time accrue annual leave in proportion to their fulltime equivalency. - ellbeecee
7 paid holidays (4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving day and the day after, Christmas eve and day, New Year's Day), 3 "floating holiday" days to use at other times, 20 vacation day. - lris
9 prov/fed holidays. 25 vacation days (cuz of tenure, tenure-track have 22). and the university is closed the week between xmas and new years (we get paid for those). - jambina
Dang, my college needs to step it up in the paid leave department. :/ - lris
wow, very interesting. thanks all! - weelibrarian
New Zealand public holidays are 1-2 Jan, 6 Feb, 25 April, Easter Friday and Monday, 1st Mon of June, Labour Day in Oct, and 25-26 Dec. There's also a provincial show day we get off. In addition, universities traditionally take Easter Tuesday and all the days between Christmas and New Year. In addition to that I get 5 weeks of annual leave (4 of which is the law, 1 of which is union-negotiated so varies a bit between universities). Oh, plus unlimited sick leave which is *not* usual but ought to be. - Deborah Fitchett
Funny you should ask now, because I was just explaining our new policy to someone. We get *NO* holidays (now) that are simply paid to everyone as holidays. They switched us to a paid time off system where not only do vacation and sick days come out of the same bank, but we have to draw from our PTO if we want to get paid on a holiday. If work is closed on a holiday and we have no PTO left, we go unpaid. We also have new, lower caps on how much leave we can have accrued at any one time. - Rachel Walden
168 duty days - maʀtha
(for anyone interested, our new cap on PTO accrual for those here >10 years is 34 days) - Rachel Walden

Yep it's about time for my hourly visit. Also, you learn to plan some extra time before meetings to make a pit stop. - ellbeecee
