Working for the State of Texas it seems like leave balances are about the only real benefit any more. 2000+ total hours of leave.

Per my employment agreement I get 4. But I take as much as I want. Took over 7 weeks in 2016 and will take about 5 this year. As long as I get my s@%t done, boss don't care where I'm at.

It also helps when you're number 2 in the company.

4 weeks vacation, 4 weeks holiday, and 12 weeks of sick pay? (Off almost 40% of the year)

What is it that you do for work? That sounds like a hell of a gig

I have 3 weeks right now, but my work is in 3-day trips. If my vacation touches any day of one of the trips, the whole 3-day gets pulled. If the vacation weeks and my bidding seniority fall just right, I can sometimes leverage 18 days off with a single weeks vacation.
I only get paid a weeks pay for all that time off, so that doesnít mean I can actually afford to be off that much.
We top out at 5 weeks vacation.
