The exact answer may be localized, however the question is definitely not too-localized as it applies to any employee that is being laid off from a company that offers floating holidays.
We will probably get many questions where the answer is
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this as companies are allowed
to set their own policy on this matter. You need to ask your HR
department about what your company's policy on this is.
This is OK. It provides the OP the answer they need, and will help other visitors in the future that come across that answer because they have the same question.
The best analogy I can think of for this is code questions on Stack Overflow. An answer explaining what the problem is and how to fix it is far better than an answer that posts the exact code to fix the problem. The first answer applies to anyone with the same problem, while the second only applies to the OP's specific situation.
In the case of this specific question, we can not provide an exact answer for the OP's situation since we do not know the policy of the company he used to work for, and in fact we wouldn't want to as that question would only apply to him, and would not be useful to future visitors.
However we can answer their question by telling them what they need to do figure out the exact answer to their situation. In fact, this is better as it will not only help the OP, but also help future visitors with the same question.
I am voting to reopen the question.
