Vacation days by quota
If you work an average of less than five days a week, more than one vacation day is used for each vacation day you take out. The vacation quota is calculated by dividing the number of full-time work days in the limitation period with the number of days you work during the same period.
There is a vacation supplement of 0.44 % for every vacation day you take out. For SACO members the vacation supplement is 0.49 %. The vacation supplement is paid when vacation days are taken out.
Teachers, researchers, research assistants and research students have a standard vacation, which means that it is assumed that all vacation days are taken out during the year. The vacation supplement is normally paid out twice a year: once in the summer and once in the winter. Employees with a standard vacation do not use the system to apply to take out vacation days.
