Lieu days


You are entitled to one floating lieu day a year and can take a lieu day if you worked a statutory holiday. Christmas and New Year's lieu days are already included in the five days you get off at that time. Lieu days must be taken within 90 days of the holiday worked. There is no guarantee you can take the lieu day in the same rotation in which you earned it. The arrangements for a lieu day are done the same as a vacation request (i.e. you should plan in advance).

Please note that lieu days are the only days that can be carried over into the next academic period, subject to the 90-day expiry period.

You are entitled to one floating lieu day per academic year. You will also be credited a lieu day if you worked any part of a statutory holiday (i.e. if you were on call from midnight until 8am on a statutory holiday, you will still be credited a lieu day).
Lieu days for Core Internal Medicine residents will be credited in Resident Calendar once the holiday is worked.


Note: The Christmas and New Year's lieu days are already included in the five days you get off at that time (see below).
