Holidays are perhaps the times of the year that workers wait the most and for which they fight the most in companies, that is because according to the country and its laws, the days of vacation are distributed.
In some parts of the world this time includes national holidays, religious holidays or the minimum mandatory paid vacation days only, while in others workers simply have to adapt to what is set by the company.
This is how the platform Resume.io reviewed the statutory pay laws and paid holidays in all countries of the world and created graphs that show the number of vacation days to which employees are entitled by country.
So we have Iran in the first place with as many as 53 days off, divided almost equally between holidays and time off, followed by Togo with 46, Yemen with 45 and San Marino with 43.
On the other hand, Micronesia with nine days and Nauru with 10 are at the bottom of the list as countries with the fewest paid vacation days for their employees. The United States is tied with Nauru for second from last, with workers having to take a minimum of 10 days of vacation per year.
You have to believe that if you work full time and dedicate 40 hours per week to your work, they deserve your time, but in most countries there are laws that grant regulatory licenses to workers. For example, 22 countries have a generous 30-day plan, with 10 of them located in Africa.
However, not all countries have the same minimum requirements, as the US, Nauru, Micronesia and Kiribati do not have any bye days. In Colombia this does not appear on paper and does not stand out in the theme of workers’ holidays.
Holidays are also important which make a difference in the number of paid days granted by companies in each country, for example, Iran offers the largest number of paid holidays in the world with a total of 27 days per year, including the Islamic Republic Day. . They were followed by Bangladesh (24), Azerbaijan (21) and Cambodia (21).
On the other hand, Libya does not pay holidays, Lebanon only has two holidays a year. But not all celebrations are holidays. For example, although it has many important national holidays and days, India pays only three national holidays: State Day, Independence Day, and Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday.
