Time to start planning your Summer Vacation!

Spring is finally here. Summer is around the corner. It never seems to be a “good time” at work to take a break from your projects, but it’s very important to come back feeling fresh. Something we’ve done over the last few years, is picked a week (or two) in the calendar for a summer and winter vacation. Once the time comes, it’s always hectic but once finally away, the vacation can start! ┬áIt’s good to get out of your regular routine and take a break from the everyday.

Did you know that the employment standards act actually mandates you have a two week vacation from work a year as long as you work in a full time role. You earn vacation as you work; you don’t start with a bank of vacation. If you have earned your vacation this year, go ahead and book a cottage this summer for a week. You won’t regret it, and hey, it’s the law! Just make sure you pre-approve the date range with your boss to ensure clients won’t be impacted and vacations can be managed.
