By law, every employee, in Israel, is entitled to annual vacation days.

The number of vacation days is determined by the employee’s seniority in the workplace.

  • The minimum amount of annual vacation days is 12 if you work a 6-day week
  • You are entitled to 10 vacation days if you work a 5-day week.

The maximum number of vacation days for a single year is 28.

Extra vacation days can be negotiated into your contract of work.

  1. Shalom
    I’ve been working in my current job for almost two years.
    I’m paid monthly but by the hour.

    How many vacation days per month am I entitled to?
    According to my payslips I usually get credited with a fraction of one day per month and not a full day.

    Is this correct?
