Employers have criticized the number of holidays in the country.  There are 246 working days in Slovakia in 2014, the lowest number among all Visegrád Group (V4) countries, an alliance of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. Poland has 251 business days and Hungary and the Czech Republic both have 252, according the Klub 500, a civic organisation uniting owners of firms with more than 500 employees. In recent years the debate has been to decrease the number of days off. However, a broad opposition led to no agreement among the parties.
