Paid Time Off (PTO)
In Andorra, employees are entitled to 30 days of paid yearly vacation in addition to public holidays. More vacation days may be included in employment agreements and collective bargaining agreements.
Employee’s leave is normally scheduled by collective agreement or by agreement between the employer and the employee. If there is no such agreement, the employer schedules the leave, based on the needs of the business. Employees must be notified of when they will receive leave at least 45 days in advance.
There are 14 public holidays.
Employees are entitled to 12 months of sick leave, which may be extended in six month increments for up to three years. Employees are paid a varied proportion of their salary depending on how much sick leave they require. Salary is determined by the employee's average daily earnings over the previous 12 months of employment, or minimum pay if no earnings are available.
Female employees receive 20 weeks of paid maternity leave and two additional weeks for each additional child in the event of multiple births or adoptions.
The expecting woman can start her maternity leave up to four weeks before the due date. Benefits are provided at 100% of a female employee's average daily wages for the previous 12 months worked out of the previous 24 months.
Benefits are paid at 100% of the female employee’s average daily earnings, based on the last 12 months worked of the 24 months prior to leave. Part of the female employee’s maternity benefit is paid to the father either after birth of the child or after the female employee returns to work.
The father receives a portion of the female employee's maternity benefit either after the kid is born or after the female employee returns to work.
Beginning six weeks after the birth, the child's father, or the mother's spouse or partner, has the option of taking the balance of the mother's maternity leave.
