Holiday and parental leave

Maternity and adoption leave are a holiday obstacle. This means that a staff member can- not take holiday during periods of leave.

Holiday must be taken as whole days. Therefore, a staff member cannot take holiday on days that consist of both work and leave (e.g. in connection with partial resumption of work or deferred leave in accordance with agreement taken as whole days).

If the staff member takes leave on some days and works on other days during a week, there is no holiday obstacle on the days when the staff member is working. Remaining holiday can therefore be taken on such days according to the general rules.

The same rules do not apply in connection with the main holiday, however, as it normally must be taken as a consecutive period of 3 weeks.

Special holidays can be taken as a fraction of a day. Therefore, it is possible to take special holidays on days when the staff member is both working and on leave.

You earn the right to holiday and special holidays with pay during all periods of leave.

Please note:
To earn the right to holiday and special holidays:

  • you must return to work before the end of the holiday year in which the holiday/special holidays must be taken, and
  • the holiday/special holidays must be taken before the end of the holi- day year in question – unless the holiday/special holidays are deferred to the next holiday year.
