An employment contract must allow an employee up to eight weeks of vacation per year, contiguous or otherwise.   Vacation time can be unpaid.   If the worker is paid on an hourly or salary basis, he may forfeit a proportionate amount of earnings.   An employee must provide at least one month of notice for every week of contiguous vacation.

A pregnant person must be allowed vacation from the start of the seventh month of gestation continuing through the two months following birth.

The requirement of advance notice is waived if the vacation is taken due to death of close friend or family, or serious illness or injury of self or dependents.
