## Video: How To Count Vacation Days Upon Dismissal

Some employees, upon dismissal, do not even realize that according to the Labor Code of the Russian Federation, they are entitled to compensation for unused vacation days. But before you get it, you need to calculate these "very" days. How can this be done?

## Instructions

### Step 1

First, it should be clarified that an employee who wishes to use the vacation can do so no earlier than six months after employment. And an employee who leaves two months after being hired can receive compensation for this period as well. That is, when a “regular unit” is fired, seniority does not matter (of course, if it is not less than a month).

### Step 2

To count the number of leave leave days, view the period from hiring to date. So, for example, if in any month the number of days worked was less than 15, then you are not entitled to leave for this month. And, conversely, in the case of more than 15 days worked - it is supposed.

### Step 3

You should also clarify what is included in the length of service. First, these are all the days when you were actually present at the workplace. Secondly, these are the days of forced absenteeism (for example, in the case of late payment of wages). And thirdly, these are the days when you were absent from the workplace for a good reason, but this number of days did not exceed 14.

### Step 4

According to the Labor Code of the Russian Federation, an employee is entitled to 28 calendar days of vacation for each calendar year. Thus, in order to determine the required number of rest days in one month, it is necessary to solve a simple mathematical problem. For 12 months, 28 days are prescribed, and for one month it means: 28/12 = 2, 33 days of vacation.

### Step 5

If you have additional vacations, for example, in the case of work in the Far North, substitute the increased number of vacation days instead of 28.

### Step 6

After you have determined the length of service and the required number of days in one month, calculate the number of vacation days using multiplication. For example, an employee has worked for 2 months. He is entitled to 28 days of paid annual leave. So 2 months * 2, 33 days = 4, 66 days. From this it follows that the employee is entitled to 5 days of vacation (Rostrud allows reductions in a larger direction).
