Summer holidays 2021

Notification of holiday/This notification is only relevant if you have earned enough days to take summer holiday.

Please plan your summer holiday with your immediate supervisor


As previously announced, as a rule the summer holiday (3 weeks/15 days) must be placed in the period May 1 - September 30, 2021. Despite limitations on travels due to corona restrictions, your holiday must still be taken.

This is what you need to do

In the past, holidays needed to be registered in advance in ProMark, but due to the transition to the new Holiday Act per September 1, 2020, it is no longer possible (for everyone) to register your holiday in advance.

Therefore, it is not required that you register your holiday in advance, but you do need to plan the placement of your holiday with your immediate supervisor. This means that there is great flexibility when placing your holiday – our only priority is to ensure that holidays are taken.

If you have not taken your 3 weeks’ holiday before September 30, and your holiday has not otherwise planned with your supervisor, the 3 weeks’ holiday will be placed in the weeks 28, 29 and 30 / Monday July 12, 2021, up to and including Friday July 30, 2021.



If you wish to place your holiday outside the period  May 1 – September 20, 2021, you must plan this (through mail) with your immediate supervisor. Remember to Cc the ProMark secretary connected to your workplace; Ninna, Winnie or Hanne. You MUST have taken your holiday not later than December 31, 2021.
