Registration of standard holiday
The procedure for registration of standard holiday can be found at http://medarbejdere.au.dk/en/administration/hr/holiday/taking-holiday-and-special-holidays/. According to this procedure, and unless stated otherwise by the employee, holidays will be registered as follows:

Ordinary holidays:

  • 4 weeks in July (weeks 27-30)
  • 1 week over Christmas (23 December, days before Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and any remaining days immediately after New Year’s Eve).

Special holidays:

  • 2 days during autumn holidays (week 42)
  • 3 days before Easter

For new employees who have accrued a partial right to paid holidays, the accrued number of days will also be registered according to the above-mentioned principles.
