Employment: Employed with Voluntary Breaks

Our standard acceptability

Not Acceptable

Criteria definition:

Indicates if we are able to potentially accept a situation whereby someone is employed but takes an unpaid break from employment for a period greater than what would constitute a holiday. For example, John works 9 months of the year in an office job but in June, July and August each year he takes 3 months off in order to pursue other things (for example a seasonal second job or charity work). After the break, he returns to his office job.

Policy Notes:

We normally only accept breaks that do not exceed two weeks.
