Hi,

could you please tell me whether the following sentence is correct:

The employee is entitled to a holiday of 4 weeks. (is the article correct or without article?)

Thanks a lot!

It is okay, Hanka, but not very formal. I would write: "The employee is entitled to 4 weeks holiday leave".

'Leave' is the more formal term and as such there are expressions such as "holiday/maternal/paternal/sick leave".

"The employee is entitled to a 4-week holiday."
