Attention: statutory holidays 2022 lapse on July 1st, 2023

Employees still have about two months to take their statutory vacation days; after that, in principle they expire and employees can no longer use them. As an employer, you must actively inform employees in time about taking vacation and the expiration of statutory holidays. Timely means: at a time when employees can still actually take vacation. So now is the time to point this out to employees.

In short, statutory vacation days are valid for a total of one and a half years (until July 1 of the year following the year in which they were accrued) and non-statutory vacation days for five years.
