Konuku has earned some respectKonuku has earned some respect
RAV payouts - are holidays deducted from one's allocation of days paid?

I am receiving unemployment benefits at the moment and trying to figure out how much longer I have left.

Does anyone know if holidays are considered "working days paid out" or if they are not included?

For example, December has 23 "working days" in it, if one were to work every day apart from weekends. However, there are 3 bank holidays in December in my canton this month. So, would I be deducted 23 working days or only 20 because they do not include bank holidays, though I do know they do pay for them anyway.

I hope I am making sense.

Thanks. I do know they are paid, but do you know if holidays are deducted from my total number of benefit days? For example, if I have 100 days left, will I have 77 or 80 days left in January? Do they pay for bank holidays without deducting them from your allocation? Or would they get deducted too like a working day?

Any days that are paid are deducted from the total days as far as I remember from my time with the RAV.

I think Konoku specifically wants to know if the three bank holidays in December are included in the total number of days he/she's covered by the RAV rather than simply if they count as paid days (they already know they are). Hence the last line of their question.

I can't help as I've never been in that situation but I'm sure someone on here knows. My guess would be that if they're paid they do count as 'unemployed days' and will come out of the total allowance of however many days you get.

Of course they are deducted, your being paid money.

Re: RAV payouts - are holidays deducted from one's allocation of days paid?

To clear up any doubt your pay slip from the unemployment insurance should show: how many days you are entitled to (Hochstanspruch)
have been paid (Bezogene Taggelder)
and how many remain (Restanspruch)

But ja as FMF said, if you get paid for 23, then its -23 days... :-(

One of those language issues - OP was apparently referring to what Brits would call bank, or public, holidays. Whereas we tend more to use "holiday" to mean what others may call "vacation".

No, public holidays do not count as "working" days, so are not deducted from the total days you're covered for.

Sorry, thats totally incorrect assuming those days fall during the week. If they are paid out it's deducted.

What may be confusing you is if you take a weeks holiday when there is a bank holiday, your holiday deduction is 4 days rather than 5.

The OP will of course be able to confirm this once he gets his paperwork for December. Looks like only 25th December counts this year as 26th is a Saturday. 26th is a normal working day in GE, I would out to my surprise a couple of years ago. I am intrigued how the OP thinks he gets 3 'bank holidays' in December
