The general rule is that you must take your vacation.
However, you can decide to keep on working and take the money instead if you and your employer agree to this.
Usually you have to take your vacation within one (1) year of your employer’s reference year.
If you cannot take them within one (1) year, you and your employer must agree on when you can take your vacation.
Some companies close for vacation during the summer or over the Christmas holidays.
You usually take your vacation during this time. If your company shuts down for two (2) weeks, and you have three (3) weeks vacation, you can take your other week at another time.
However, you must take all three (3) weeks during this time if your company shuts down for three (3) weeks.
