    So my question is this. If you work Monday to Friday and it's now time for your paid holidays and you're going to take 2 weeks does that mean 14 days of the actual days you normally work or is it 14 days total including the weekends you normally have off? Example. I want to start my vacation on Monday April 10 and come back Friday April 28th. That is 14 days of what would normally be my work week. Does that make sense???

    Vacation days are your work days so M-F would be 5 days so yes if you would return on the 28th then you would be using 14 vacation days.

    2 weeks would be 10 days. You are planning on taking 14 days (almost 3 weeks) If you get "2 weeks" paid vacation then you are only paid/entitled to 10 days off. You may be able to take more time off unpaid.

    If you started on the 10th, you would go back to work on the 24th.

    Remember to factor in Easter - if you get any of the days off as stats.

    Since Good Friday and Easter fall within her vacation period and she's not working before and after the holidays, the only way she'd get statutory holiday pay is if there is a union contract stating her job gets holiday pay regardless of working or being on vacation. For non-union workers, the requirement is to work before and after the stat holidays in Ontario to qualify for stat pay.

    14 calendar days including weekends. I assume work would want you booked off from the Sunday (9th) to Saturday April 22 , if that is how a pay week usually runs at your workplace. If Monday is considered the start of a new payweek, then Monday April 10 to Sunday April 23 is your two week vacation period. You'd be over the two week period if you book off up to April 28.

    Timing of vacation

    35. The employer shall determine when an employee shall take his or her vacation for a vacation entitlement year, subject to the following rules:
    1. The vacation shall be completed no later than 10 months after the end of the vacation entitlement year for which it is given.
    2. The vacation shall be a two-week period or two periods of one week each, unless the employee requests in writing that the vacation be taken in shorter periods and the employer agrees to that request. 2002, c. 18, Sched. J, s. 3 (18).

    Thanks for all the replies. I'm in BC so I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

    Its actually my husband taking the time off and he gets 3 weeks a year but when he went to book our vacay they told him he could only take 14 days max so I was confused. I thought that would be 14 days. He's actually not taken actual vacation for the last 3 years but just got paid out instead so it's a bit frustrating when we finally want to take a trip which is in celebration of me being 1 year cancer free.

    @harbie , you hid the most important part of this thread, IMHO.
    Congratulations on being one year cancer free!
    Looking forward to you celebrating the second year being cancer free.
    Thank you for sharing.
    I celebrate along with you and your husband.
