1. Ordinary days off
Saturdays and Sundays
2. Bank holidays
Christmas Day (25 December) , the day after Christmas Day (26 December), New Year’s Day (1 January), Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Monday, General Prayer Day, Ascension Day and Whit Monday (these holidays are fixed annually)
3. Other fixed holidays
The day of Christmas Eve (24 December), the day of New Year’s Eve (31 December) and Constitution Day (5 June)
4. Half day off
International Worker’s Day (1 May). Employees may request a half day off from 12:00 on 1 May to attend Labour Day rallies. In order for the request to be met, it is a prerequisite that the particular unit can function satisfactorily all day. Employees must make their request of this half day off no later than 23 April or the following ordinary working day after this date to their line manager. Notice of approval of time off will be given no later than three working days prior to 1 May.
In case the Statute relating to Public Servants (Tjenestemandsloven) or collective agreements entitle employees to additional days off, this right is maintained.
If additional special agreements on holidays not comprised by this agreement exist, these should be reported to the Main Joint Consultation Committee who will recommend to the University management to maintain, cancel or terminate these agreements.
The present agreement is subject to changes according to new legislation and new or amended collective agreements.
This agreement replaces any previous agreements.
