No paid vacation days left, still want to travel

Posted on October 7, 2015 | in Travellers Questions | by







Canadian here. My job only gives 2 weeks of paid vacation instead of 3 and I already used them all to go to South Korea and Australia. Im feeling burnt out and I really want to take about a week off but whats worrying me is the money that I will not be making during that period of time.

Do you guys take non-paid vacations? How do you plan it ? How do you not let it stress you out?

Note, Im from Toronto and also not looking to go far, either west coast or NS.

Thank you

  1. TravelDirectory.com.au says:

    Leave without pay (LWOP) is a temporary nonpay status and absence from duty that, in most cases, is granted at the employee’s request. In most instances, granting LWOP is a matter of supervisory discretion and may be limited by agency internal policy. Employees, however, have an entitlement to LWOP in the following situations:

    The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) (Public Law 103-3, February 5, 1993), provides covered employees with an entitlement to a total of up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave (LWOP) during any 12-month period for certain family and medical needs. (See 5 CFR part 630, subpart L.)

    The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (Pub.L. 103-353) provides employees with an entitlement to LWOP when employment with an employer is interrupted by a period of service in the uniformed service. (See 5 CFR 353.106.)

    Executive Order 5396, July 17, 1930, provides that disabled veterans are entitled to LWOP for necessary medical treatment.

    Employees may not be in a pay status while receiving workers’ compensation payments from the Department of Labor.
