In other cases, compensation is paid based on time worked. That is, for each completed month of work expected of 2.33 calendar days of vacation (28 calendar days divided into 12 months). If the holiday is put a different duration, then the number of days divided by 12 months.

For example, if the employee worked for 3 months and is not entitled to additional leave, the compensation he will be entitled to 7 days of 2.33*3). However, it so happens that the employee at the time of dismissal did not complete the number of days e.g. 2 months and 15 days, then the last rounded to the nearest whole month, and if less than 15 days, then rounding will not be done.
