You are required to take your vacation within [NUMBER] calendar year after you earn it. You will not be eligible to receive pay instead of vacation time except with company permission or upon termination. Vacation time, which is taken prior to being earned, is considered an advancement of wages and, upon termination, will be deducted from your paycheck. Any conflict in vacation requests will be decided based on employee seniority and company needs. You will not be entitled to accrued vacation during periods when you are on personal leave of absence or if you are suspended from the company.
If a holiday occurs during your vacation period you will be granted one additional day of vacation. [IF YOU ARE SICK DURING YOUR VACATION PERIOD YOU MAY NOT COUNT THAT DAY TOWARDS SICK PAY.] You must take vacation in a minimum of [NUMBER] week allotments unless specifically approved of by your supervisor.
You are not eligible for any paid vacation until you have completed one year of employment with the company.

After [NUMBER] year of employment, [NUMBER] weeks of vacation will accrue. After the second year of employment and onward, you will begin accruing vacation at subsequent anniversary dates.
Employees are encouraged to use available paid vacation time for rest, relaxation, and personal pursuits. In the event that available vacation is not used by the end of the benefit year, employees may carry unused time forward to the next benefit year. If the total amount of unused vacation time reaches a “cap” equal to [VACATION AMOUNT], further vacation accrual will stop. When the employee uses paid vacation time, and brings the available amount below the cap, vacation accrual will begin again up to the cap limit.
Employees will be paid for unused vacation time that has been accrued through the last day of work upon termination of employment.
