LG pays holiday allowance in accordance with the provisions of the Danish Holiday Act.

Year of accrual

You will accrue 12.5% holiday allowance on your entire gross wages in the calendar year from 1 January to 31 December.

You will accrue 2.08 days of holiday per month.

Holiday year

Holiday must be taken in the holiday year from 1 May to 30 April of the following year.

The holiday supplement is normally 1% of the wages that qualify for holiday with pay from the most recent calendar year.

The holiday supplement constitutes a part of the 12.5% holiday allowance.

If you receive holiday allowance from LG, you will not receive any holiday supplement.

If you have holiday remaining from the last calendar year, LG will consider all or parts of your holiday to have been taken during your notice period.

This also applies to new holiday entitlements if your notice period extends beyond 1 May when the new holiday year starts.

Notice of holiday

Your employer may have notified you that you must take any remaining holiday during your notice period. If no notice is given, notice will be given automatically when you are released from your duties.

  • You must take your main holiday if three months' notice plus your holiday can be accommodated up until the end of your notice period.
  • You must take your remaining holiday if one month's notice plus your holiday can be accommodated up until the end of your notice period.

Main holiday and remaining holiday

Your holiday is divided into:

  • main holiday – up to the first 15 days
  • remaining holiday – over and above the 15 days.

Holiday allowance or holiday with pay

For all days of holiday taken, you are entitled to either holiday allowance or paid holiday.

LG can only grant holiday allowance or paid holiday corresponding to the number of days of holiday that you have accrued from your employer.

On the 'Dokumentation for indtægt og jobsøgning' (Documentation for income and job search) form which LG sends to you, you must indicate when you have taken holiday during your notice period.

LG places holiday in the notice period in accordance with the provisions of the Danish Holiday Act.

If you get a new job during the notice period and therefore is fully or partially unable to take your holiday, you can apply for compensation for the days of holiday that you are unable to take.

Such compensation is called compensation for loss of holiday.

If you want LG to calculate whether you are entitled to compensation for loss of holiday, you must notify LG when your notice period has expired and submit the 'Documentation of income and job search' form.
