Holiday and absence registration


Absences (illness, child care days, child's 1st and 2nd sickness day, senior days etc.) must be reported to your manager, as well as your absence administrator (see below).


On 1 September 2020, all employees at AU were transferred to the concurrent holiday scheme which means that holidays are accrued and can be taken on an ongoing basis.

You accrue 2.08 days of ordinary holiday per month, i.e. 25 days of holiday in the period from 1 September to 31 August. You can take your holiday in the period from 1 September to 31 December in the following year (16 months).

In addition, you accrue five special holidays, which can be taken in the period from 1 May to 30 April.
