Some employees are entitled to additional paid leave apart from basic vacation:
1. Personnel with irregular working hours
The duration of additional vacation for such employees shall be specified in the local regulatory acts of the company (Labor Internal Regulations or a collective agreement).
Such vacation may not be less than 3 calendar days.
2. Employees at works with harmful and dangerous labor terms
If, according to the results of a special assessment, the labor terms of employees are recognised as harmful or dangerous, the employees are entitled to additional leave of at least 7 calendar days.
3. Working in the regions of the Far North and equal territories
Employees, working in the regions of the Far North, have the right to rest additionally 24 calendar days, and at equal territories - 16 calendar days. There are also territories that do not belong to the regions of the Far North or equal areas, but in which a regional coefficient and a percentage markup to salary are established. In this case, additional leave for employees is 8 calendar days.
4. Engaged to works of a special nature
The list of such employees' categories is established by the Government. For example: a general practice doctor, who has worked in his position for more than 3 years, can additionally rest 3 calendar days a year.
5. Other employees, if the employer shall provide additional vacation to them according to a law.
For example: an employee's health was injured as a result of a production accident. In this case, the employer is obliged to provide the employee with additional leave for spa treatment, including the time that the employee will spend on travel to the place of treatment and back.
The law does not establish the maximum duration of additional vacation, but leaves it to the discretion of the employer.
Additional leave is added to the main one. And an employee decides for himself whether to take it entirely or divide it into parts.
Максимальной продолжительности дополнительного отпуска закон не устанавливает, а оставляет на усмотрение работодателя.
Дополнительный отпуск суммируется с основным. А трудящийся сам решает, брать его целиком или делить на части.
For example: an employee is entitled to the main vacation - 28 days and additional - 3 days, in total - 31 days. The employee decided to divide the vacation into parts like this: 14 + 4 + 3 + 3 + 7
