Legal minimum holidays suits employers

A majority of the 200 employers in BNR radio’s monthly poll are happy with the current statutory holiday allocation of 20 days but almost 20% think 30 days holiday would be better. Most Dutch pay deals already include extra days off, giving people around 25 days paid leave a year.
