Suppose your employer gives you 3 weeks of paid vacation per year. You take 2 weeks in May. And in a couple of months later, you resign. What happens with that 1 week? Do you lose it, or do they pay you 1 week extra?
And what if you go to your new employer, and he also gives you 3 weeks/year. But you already took 2 or 3 weeks earlier that year with your first employer. I assume that doesn’t affect the new employers vacation?

(don't know if it's depending on the province, but in my case, it's about Ontario and a non unionised job)

In the first scenario they deduct unearned days taken from your final pay and you don't get anything for the week you didn't take (you haven't earned it, you earn a percentage of your annual leave per day worked).

With the new job, you usually aren't entitled to take any holidays in the first 6 months (unless otherwise negotiated) and you will again only have the percentage of the holidays in preportion to that you work. To make it easy, if you get 3 weeks/year and only work 4 months in the "year" for that company you get 1 week.

Sounds logic.
Thank you, G-Mo!
