Here are the official requirements by CIC,

" The following documents are mandatory for each work experience declared:

a reference or experience letter from the employer, which
should be an official document printed on company letterhead (must include the applicant’s name, the company’s contact information [address, telephone number and email address], and the name, title and signature of the immediate supervisor or personnel officer at the company),
should indicate all positions held while employed at the company and must include the following details: job title, duties and responsibilities, job status (if current job), dates worked for the company, number of work hours per week and annual salary plus benefits; ""

Lets say an employer states, in a reference letter, that the employee worked for two years with the company specifying he/she worked 40 hours per week or part time or whatever.

What happens if the employee had taken some time off for vacation or fell sick for a couple weeks or couple months but was still compensated during this period?

How would the work hours be calculated??
Would it be two years or 1 year and 10 months assuming an employee was out sick for two months.

How does one deal with this situation if an employer doesn't mention any sick leave or vacation. Is the express entry applicant supposed to mention it?? This would basically be contradictory to what the employer has issued.

Any insights??

Pre-Assessed..
Paid vacation or paid leave are both fine, you do not have to deduct those time periods from your calculation.

Would one have to provide a letter of explanation for it?

My employer did not mention annual salary but mentioned monthly salary inclusive of benefits on the experience letter.
I have latest 3 months salary slips with me and that’s it. Would it be a problem?

please advise.
