Terms of employment
Practical information if you want to work in Denmark, such as information about sick leave, employment contracts and salaries.
Holiday when you work in Denmark
If you work in Denmark, you are subject to the Danish holiday legislation called "Ferieloven". You have the right to go on five weeks of holiday, but you should note that the Danish holiday year runs from 1st of May in the one year until 30th of April in the following year.
Child care when you work in Denmark
There are no rules in Denmark that match the Swedish rules about care for a sick child (VAB). This means that you are not always entitled to paid leave to look after a sick child. Many employment contracts nevertheless allow employees to stay at home one or two days with a sick child while receiving full pay.
