Holiday, sickness, absence and parental leave

Holiday, sick leave and other kind of absence

Sickness and sick leave, child’s first and second sickness days, time off due to a child's illness and holiday must be registered with your local absence record keeper, who you must notify on the morning of the first day of absence and again when you at back at work.

The following colleagues at CC are absence record keepers and must be contacted in the event of sickness, holiday, and absence:

►In case of illness that lasts more than two weeks, please inform your immediate manager (department manager/secretariat manager), who will invite you to a sick leave and care interview no later than 4 weeks after your 1st day of absence. PhD students must also inform the PhD administration in case of illness.

► Every year, the school notifies the staff about the pre-registered holidays according to the holiday matrix. As stated in the holiday matrix, you may – by agreement - move the holiday. This must take place before the start of the announced holiday period (if this regards the main holiday, i.e. summer holidays, no later than 1 June), and it must also be stated to which new period the holiday is to be held .

NB: For temporary employees, holidays can only be transferred to a period within the employment period.
