Leave without pay to care for children under 18 years of age with an appreciable and permanent physical or mental disability at home

If an employee at Aarhus University is compensated for his/her lost earnings by the municipality under section 42 of the Danish Act on Social Services (Serviceloven) in order to care for a child under 18 years of age with an appreciable and permanent physical or mental disability or a severe chronic or long-term condition, the university can grant unpaid leave.

The benefit paid by the municipality is conditional upon the child’s disability making it necessary for the child to be cared for at home and it being most appropriate for the mother or father to care for the child.

 

In the event of any inconsistency between the Danish and English language versions of the document, the Danish version prevails.
