For information regarding holiday payment, visit: https://lifeindenmark.borger.dk/Pages/Holiday-allowance.aspx
While working in Denmark, you will receive a holiday allowance of 2.08 days per month. You can use this “holiday allowance” during the second year of your employment.
Here is an example
You earn “holiday allowance” from 1 January to 31 December and you use this money the following year, starting 1 May.
This means that:
The money you earn as »holiday allowance« in the period of 1 January - 31 December 2017, you can use from 1 May 2018 to 30 April 2019. In the period of 1 January - 31 December 2017 you may take up to 5 weeks of holiday, according to your employer’s schedule. However, you will not receive money in this period.
If you leave Denmark before receiving your “holiday allowance”, you will need to contact your local “kommune” and they will assist you in receiving this payment.
