Some companies mandate that certain company days off must come out of staff members' allowances, this is most commonly seen with Christmas closure but can affect other times of year as well. In these cases, you may want to create a leave type specifically to track the mandatory days off, as this has two benefits over simply booking it as 'Holiday / Vacation'.
First, these days will be visually distinct on the calendar, ensuring staff are clear on why the day has been booked off. And second, you can implement a 'cancellation period' which will prevent staff from canceling these days and using that portion of their allowance to book different dates off.
