Paid time off

Regardless of whether the employee is full-time or part-time, at least four weeks of paid vacation is required.

Public holidays

Slovenia recognizes fifteen public holidays.

Sick days

Employees can take as much sick time as they like as long as they provide a doctor's certificate. If the illness or injury was caused at work, the employer will cover the first 30 days. After that, social security will cover it.

Maternity leave

Slovenian maternity leave is paid for 105 days, including up to 28 days before the child's birth. Pay is determined by the average of the preceding 12 months' earnings.

Paternity leave

Paternity leave is paid for 30 days. Pay is based on a 12-month average of wages, up to 2.5 times the average monthly wage in Slovenia (currently EUR 3,664.31).

Parental leave

Up to 130 days of extended leave are available to each parent, paid at the same rate as maternity and paternity leave, up to 2.5 times the average monthly wage in Slovenia (currently EUR 3,664.31).

A father can give his mother the whole 130 days, while a mother can give her father up to 100 days. Up until the child completes first grade, up to 75 days can be used.

Other leave

Employees over the age of 55, those with impairments, and those caring for a disabled child are all eligible for up to three additional paid days off. Parents with children under the age of 15 are entitled to an extra day per child.
