If you have been employed in the period from 1 September 2019 to 31 August 2020 and were accruing holidays under the Danish Holiday Act, you have saved up holiday funds.
This period was a transition year to a new Holiday Act in Denmark, and instead of having up to one year of accrued holiday extra, your accrued holidays for the transition year were turned into savings managed by Lønmodtagernes Feriemidler.
You were assigned these savings whether you were a salaried employee or an hourly-paid employee. Your employer is reporting and paying holiday pay to the fund.
You have presumably not accrued holiday funds if you were employed as, for example, a CEO or au pair, as these types of jobs are outside the scope of the Danish Holiday Act.
If you have been hired as an agricultural worker or under the researcher tax scheme (‘forskerskatteordningen’), it will depend on your terms of employment. You can contact your employer to learn about what circumstances you were working under.
If you are unsure whether you have savings, you can contact our customer service for advice and guidance.
