Holiday and senior days 2019

Do you have a lot of holiday left this year, or are you 62 years or more? All employees get one day off with pay between Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.


Do you have any holiday left this year? You can either take the holiday on this side of New Year's Eve, or you can transfer it to next year. You can transfer up to 14 days. Talk with your head of department or administration manager. 

You cannot take unused holidays as salary. For further information, please see transferring and taking holiday in advance in the employee handbook.


From the year you turn 62 years, you are entitled to 10 extra days off with pay each calendar year. (Eight days are provided for by the HTA Basic Collective Agreement and two days are agreed on at NHH between the parties involved). You can take the 10 days off with pay either as whole days or as reduced working hours by agreement with NHH. They cannot be transferred to next year. Also, it is not possible to get payed salary for these days. If you don't use your Senior Days by the end of the year, they will be deleted.


You may take one day off with pay between Christmas and New Year. 

For the administrative staff office hours begin at 10 o'clock on the working days between Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. 

You can take either Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve if your head of department grants it.

For further information, please see working hours on public holidays in our Employee Handbook.
