Unpaid leave may be granted to AAU employees who need to care for a child under the age of 18 suffering from reduced physical or mental functional capacity. It is a precondition that the employee has been granted reimbursement of lost earnings by the municipal authorities pursuant to section 42 in Serviceloven (the Danish Social Services Act) on home care for a child under the age of 18.
It is a precondition for the municipal granting of leave that it is necessary for the child to be cared for in the home by either the father or the mother.
The municipal authorities grant or refuse the application regarding unpaid leave for employees caring for dependants suffering from permanently reduced functional capacity. You may contact your Department or the HR Department if you need assistance with your contact to the municipal authorities.
Any agreements on paid or unpaid leave must be made by the employee with their line manager according to the Scheme of Delegation.
