Increased Leave for over 45s

I was very surprised to see in my work contract that over 45 year olds get an extra 5 days a year at my company - is this normal for Switzerland. I qualify and am obviously pleased, but I can't help thinking what the rationale is - is it because we are getting tired and need more leave - it cannot be a "perk" as it is not related to long service, simply your age.

It's a legal requirement at 50 to get 25 days, 20 days for the U50's.

No, not true. The legal minimum is 20 days.

Re: Increased Leave for over 45s

I already get 25 days holiday per year and my company gives nothing for years of service or after a certain age (lost holiday when I came here, but never mind).
