Holiday pay

All salaried employees, including PhD students (excluding PhD student on part A) can earn the right to paid holiday. Non-Danish employees who are covered by the special rules on concurrent holiday (holiday that may be taken at the same time as it is being accrued) have the right to paid holiday. 

Read more about the Danish holiday rules including how to earn and take holiday on the Staff Portal.
