 (CNN) - It may be good for your boss, but it's not ideal for American workers.

According to Expedia's annual vacation deprivation study, Americans are expected to waste two vacations days this year.

The average American has 12 days of vacation to use, which is down from 14 last year. However, many will only take 10.

Still, the United States ranked better than the Japan, where the average worker takes only five of their allotted 13 days.

The study found that the biggest reason Americans are throwing the days away is because of scheduling conflicts. Americans also have hopes that days can be rolled over.

Vacation days for 2012 will expire at the end of December for many companies who have use-it-or-lose-it vacation policies.
