Also days are not considered when he was suspended from the performance of his work duties for one of the reasons provided for by the Labor Code.

The following periods are included in the length of service:

- period of actual work;
- the period when a person did not work in fact, but held a specific position at work;
- the period when the employee was suspended from work for no fault of his own (medical examination without fail);
- dismissal is not by law or suspension and subsequent restoration, suggesting absenteeism is not their fault.

Periods of illness and past holidays with pay must also be included in the length of service. it includes and less than 2 weeks of leave at own expense, calculated for 1 year of work.

## The formula for calculating

If you are wondering how to count the days off, youshould know about a simple calculation formula. According to it, it is necessary to divide the total annual vacation in days by 12 months, multiply by the number of worked months and subtract from the amount received the number of vacation days used. It is important to note that the worked month assumes more than half of one working month.

Therefore, it turns out that if the annual leave in days is 28 days, the employee worked 11 months and spent 10 days off, then the calculation scheme will look like this:
