    it scales up with years of service, starting at 3 weeks (15 days), increasing to 4 after 6 years of service and 5 at 12 years. Two floating holidays (no carry-over year to year) plus around 10 fixed, paid holidays and 10 sick days.

    Don't break it up into vacation/personal/sick. Make it a single bucket. Otherwise you punish folks who don't get sick by giving them less time off.
