speaking, the amount of paid vacation time depends on the length of
service and the level in the organization. Usually companies have some
scale that decides how many paid vacation days an employee will receive.
Four or five weeks of vacation is not unlikely for an employee who
remains with a company for more than 15 years, although that's typically
the upper limit for vacation benefits in the United States. Some
employers base vacation days on the employment anniversary date, while
others use the calendar year to keep track. Employees should always ask
whenever there is doubt.
