Denmark - Agreement addresses grey area in holiday rules - February 28, 2017

An agreement between CO-Industri, the central organisation of industrial employees, and Dansk Industri, the confederation of Danish industry, establishes new rules on holidays and care leave. The rules in the collective agreement will affect 230,000 employees working at 6,000 companies in the industrial sector. From now onwards, parents will be able to take the following day off should their child become ill whilst at day-care or school, and it will only count as one of their two annual childcare days. Besides, should a worker fall ill before his holiday, he will be able to subtract the days spent on sick leave on holiday from your official time off. In addition, the rules for time off in connection with children’s hospitalisation will be expanded to also include hospitalisation at home.
