If there is one thing we can all agree on is that we don’t get enough leave every year to spend quality time outdoors with our friends and family. Luckily for you there a few “tricks” you can use in 2020 to maximise your vacations with a few strategic leave days. Here’s how you can take 5 days leave and get 24 days off in 2020.
1. The Easter weekend is 4 days long
Since Human Rights Day on 21 March falls on a Saturday this year, the first opportunity to enjoy a long weekend will only be over Easter. The Easter weekend runs from 10 to 13 April – so that’s 4 days off from work without dipping into your annual leave days.
2. Take 3 days and get 9 days off
The next opportunity presents itself later in the month with Freedom Day on 27 April, and Workers’ Day on 1 May. The former falls on a Monday, while the latter falls on a Friday, so you can take off the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and enjoy a nine-day break.
3. Take 1 day and get 4 days off
Youth Day, 16 June, this year falls on a Tuesday, so if you put in leave for the Monday, you can kick your feet up for four days.
4. We have a 3-day weekend on the cards
This year Women’s Day falls on Sunday 9 August and as a result, we get Monday 10 August off.
5. Take 1 day and get 4 days off
This year, Heritage Day falls on Thursday 24 September so put in for one leave day on Friday 25 September and you’ll have another four-day weekend in the bag.
TIP: It’s best to submit these leave forms well in advance before anyone else in the office gets the inside scoop on how to make the most of SA’s public holidays.
Now that you know these extra tips to make the most of your 2020 leave, you can start planning your next Bazley Holiday today.
