Paid time off

A minimum of 20 days of yearly leave is required. Employees whose full-time work hours are lowered from 40 to 36 hours per week are entitled to 30 working days if they work in a job with difficult working conditions. Employees who work a six-day week are entitled to at least 24 working days of yearly leave.

Public holidays

Montenegro recognizes ten public holidays.

Sick days

For the first 60 days of sick leave, employees get 70% reimbursement from their employer, with the remainder coming from social security.


Employees must produce a medical certificate to their employers within three days of beginning their sick leave.

Maternity leave

Employees who are expecting a child are entitled to 98 days of paid maternity leave. It is taken 28 days before delivery and 70 days following childbirth.

Paternity leave

Paternity leave is enclosed in parental leave.

Parental leave

Parental leave can be utilized for a total of 365 days once maternity leave has ended. Each parent is entitled to an equal amount of time off. Parental leave taken by one parent may be transferred to the other parent once 30 days have passed from the day it was taken. If this is done, the parent who transferred the right to the other parent will lose the right to utilize parental leave in the future.
