Re: Garden Leave and untaken/ accrued holidays

I think it's rather:
- 80 days of gardening leave
- maximum 1/3rd = 26 2/3 can be "forced use of vacation / overtime hours"
- so company is paying the remaining 7.5 days of vacation / overtime

i.e. OP had 26 2/3 + 7.5 = 33-ish days of accrued vacation time and not-paid-out-overtime.

yes, that's how I interpreted it too

I do not follow the logic here
- you had 80-days of outstanding holidays ?
- are you sure - do you have that in written ?

You were let go and you did not take holidays when employer now is offering you to pay 7.5. days ?

What happened to remaining 72.5 days ?

I guess you have a case for legal action here as you were (most likley) not offered minimum of 2-weeks continuous holidays in every calendar year .

Just to be clear - to accommodate 80-days - one would need to work between 3-4 years (20-25 days a year depends on age) - with no holidays at all. That be wrong doing by employer in my mind.

Btw - weren't you planning to leave the country and go to IT?
They put me on garden leave (80 days) , saying that all the holidays / overtime would be compensated by the garden leave.

In conclusion the 80 days will be all payed , + 7,5 days will be also payed now.

Yes, I willl leave them some money but if I remember correctly somebody engaged a lawyer for a similar case (not sure where I read it) and the conclusion was something similar.

I only thought it could be interesting to report the "official" feedback from a company in this thread to show how things goes .

Regarding myself I will probably accept a job offer in the NL ...
