Holidays must be agreed with your immediate superior (or with your group) and must be reported to Anne Kate in the reception. Anne Kate is responsible for the account of holidays at the NBI, Blegdamsvej. An account of holidays must be kept by the local place of work and is statutory.

Newly appointed employees will receive a holiday form from Økonomisk Administration, Løn (Division of Financial Affairs, Wages Office). The form must be filled in stating your right, if any, to a paid holiday, earned during previous employment.

You earn the right to 2,5 days of holyday with every month of employment during a calender year (the year of earning). Uninterupted employment during the entire year of earning thus gives you the right to 5 weeks of holiday.

Holidays must be held in the year following the year of earning. The so-called holiday year dates from 2 May one year to 1 May the following year.

For further details you are most welcome to contact Ulla Holm, the Guest Secretariate, e-mail: uholm@nbi.dk
