If you have applied for payment of frozen holiday funds earned in the period 1 September 2019 - 31 March 2020, where you have also been on maternity leave during this period, the employer may have calculated holiday pay incorrectly.

Frozen holiday pay must be calculated from the full usual salary, even if you received partial pay during maternity leave or only the employer's pension contribution.

The reason is that you would have been entitled to full-paid holiday at the time you wanted to take the holiday, even though at the time of earning the holiday you only received partial pay.

The holiday pay must be calculated on the basis of the usual salary for the last 4 weeks before the commencement of leave with partial pay.

You must request the Employees' Holiday Funds for reconsideration of the payment no later than 15 January 2021.

During the period of your leave where you only received maternity benefit, you have not earned holiday pay.

If you have not requested payment of frozen holiday funds, you can here in the spring of 2021 request payment of the entire amount saved in the period 1 September 2019 - 31 August 2020.
Keep an eye on Lønmodtagernes Feriemidler ( when it opens for application for payment.

You will at the beginning of 2021 receive a statement of your earned holiday pay and you can see from the statement that your employer has not calculated holiday pay from your usual full pay during your leave, you must contact Lønmodtagernes Feriemidler and submit your pay slips for September 2019 - August 2020
