Christmas Holiday at Aalborg University
Aalborg University is closed between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Consequently, on principle, all AAU employees are required to take holiday on the working days between the public holidays Boxing Day (26 December) and New Year's Eve (31 December). In the year 2021 the days in question are monday 27, tuesday 28, wednesday 29 and thursday 30 .
Closure between Christmas and New Year’s Eve is in accordance with section 10. Employees who have accumulated holidays (either with salary from AAU or with a holiday certificate from another employer) are personally responsible for ‘saving’ the necessary number of holidays to be taken between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. If they fail to do so, holiday without payment must be taken, and their next salary will be reduced accordingly.
Employees who have not earned paid holidays (either with salary from AAU or with a holiday certificate from another employer) will have their salary reduced as the holiday between Christmas and New Year is mandatory.
