Holiday entitlement in Spain

Workers are entitled by law to annual holiday leave and are entitled to receive the same level of pay as normal working time. The holidays are to be taken during the calendar year and should not be accumulated from one year to the next.

The setting or modification of annual leave is not the prerogative of the employer solely and there should be an agreement with the employee. If not the matter may be resolved in the Social Courts.

The employer should arrange for a 'holiday calendar' as early as possible each year as each employee has the right to know 2 months in advance of the beginning date of the holidays. Should the period allotted to an employee fall at the same time as maternity leave, the employee will be entitled to take the holidays at another time.

Should an employee leave the company before taking their holidays they will be entitled to receive the equivalent financially.
