and continuing on from there, employers wishing to not pay the holiday fund 8% contributuion to social insurance, must prove that they give in excess of current SI allowance which is 28 days, including public holidays....

I think the biggest issue in Cyprus is that when public holidays fall on weekends, they are not given, or when they are it can be ANY day of the week- i know its being tabled in parliament for a change, but would make a big differnce....

The resulting 5.6 weeks will be subject to an absolute maximum of 28 days. This gives five-day workers an entitlement to 28 days paid leave in a year but limits the number of days leave for six-day workers to their current 24 days, plus an additional four days only.

These are statutory minimum entitlements and do not prevent employers from providing greater contractual entitlement, as many already do. As all paid days of holiday count towards the statutory entitlement, including paid bank holidays, many employers are already providing at least 28 days paid holiday to their five-day workers – the minimum entitlement from April 2009.
