Time off and overtime

People ops

People operations

The workday for full-time contracts is comprised of 8 hours. You can decide to reduce your contract's work hours and opt for part-time work.


There are 22 days of vacation per year (176 hours). All members of the team must communicate the vacation days they wish to take via chat or verbally, with a notice of at least two weeks if possible.

Vacation days accrued in a year must be used within 18 months: e.g., the remaining days on 31/12/2019 must be used by 1/06/2021.


You don't have to follow a specific calendar for Holidays. You have 11 days, use them at your discretion. Just let the team know in advance of your plans.

Italian employees

The national contract strictly defines the Italian Holidays, and you have 11 Holidays too.

A special mention goes to the Patron Saint holiday ("Santo Patrono"). The day of this holiday depends on where you work from:

  • Pescara: October 10th;
  • Latina: July 6th;
  • remote: October 10th.

On this day, our offices are not closed, and you can decide whether you want to work or not.

Since this is considered work on a holiday, your pay will be +30% the standard pay if you choose to come to the office or work remotely.

Time off, special leave and overtime

The annual number of hours for time off depends on how long you've been with us.

Length of service Hours/Year
0 - 24 32
25 - 48 60
>48 88

Another type of paid leave is when it is granted in special cases. Below is a non-exhaustive list:

  • birth;
  • marriage;
  • death of relatives up to the second level;
  • blood donation.

If you think you have the right to paid leave, write to the administrative manager (@endriu), who will check this for you.

Overtime is a working time in excess of the 8 hours a day. We don't recommend, under any circumstances, to exceed the limit of 48 hours a week.

Compensation and rounding-off

All overtime hours and time off in the month will be compensated at the end of the month. The balance will then be rounded-up to the nearest half-hour by applying the following rules:

  • from 0 to 0.249 = 0;
  • from 0.25 to 0.749 = 0.5;
  • from 0.75 to 1 = 1

and so on.

Sick leave

We support you in the unfortunate case of sick leave. We pay a different percentage of the daily pay for sick days, depending on the event number from the year beginning and the number of days. Rates are shown in this table:

% Pay Days 1-3 Days 4-20 Days 21+
Event 1 100% 25% 33%
Event 2 100% 25% 33%
Event 3 100% 25% 33%
Event 4 100% 25% 33%
Event 5+ 0% 25% 33%

The event counter resets when a new year arrives.

International employees

To grant your sick leave, we need a medical certificate or medical care proof.

We highly recommend covering the earning loss risk with appropriate insurance coverage.

Italian employees

For communications regarding sick leave, employees must contact their physician to request a sick leave certificate. The physician will send the certificate electronically to INPS, which, in turn, will make it available in electronic form. Based on the sick leave days granted by the attending physician, the employee must communicate to the company the days of absence together with the certificate's unique code.

Permit type

When deciding which type of permit to choose between, adopt the following rules:

  • Ferie is used for vacation days: you can use it for whole days off;
  • ROL is used for time off hours: you can use it by putting in the number of hours of time off;
  • Malattia is used in case of sick leave (make sure to add the protocol code issued by your physician to the notes);
  • Straordinario is used for overtime hours: you can use it by putting in the number of hours in excess of the 8 hours a day;
  • Permessi Retribuiti is used for time off granted in special cases listed in the section Time off, special leave and overtime.
