In the Netherlands, until 2008 workers over the age of 52 were entitled to additional holiday entitlements of one day a week. However, as part of the efforts to make employing older staff more attractive to companies, the trade unions agreed that in some sectors older workers should lose their preferential age-related benefits, such as additional holidays. Instead, employers were encouraged to invest more in education and training.
