Some countries actually require companies to give employees vacation leave. This infographic, created by the employee leave and FMLA (Family And Medical Leave Act) experts at Employment law HQ, highlights the vacation requirements of countries around the world. The results are a bit surprising and, depending on your views, concerning, especially if you live in the United States. It raises the question of whether some societies like the U.S. have become too work-obsessed, and taking vacation is unfortunately misconstrued in those societies as having “lack of commitment” to one’s job. All I know for sure is that I would love to be able to work in Austria!
