Academic workers are entitled to eight weeks holiday per calendar year.

Other employees are entitled to five weeks holiday per calendar year.

In addition to holidays, employees are allowed to take as many as five personal development days per calendar year (business days off when an employee can tend to their personal growth and develop their potential). The Dean’s Measures set out the conditions for taking holidays and personal development days.

An employee’s holidays are subject to the approval of their head of workplace. Holiday applications may be submitted using the required form (available from the workplace’s secretariat) or via e-mail to the head of the workplace. Please consult your workplace’s secretariat for advice on the local customary practice.
