However, the Folketing passed a new law, which means that 3 weeks of holiday pay saved in the period 1 September 2019 - 31 March 2020 could be applied for in the autumn of 2020.
Once you have requested payment, you will receive a letter stating the amount and time of payment. The amount is transferred to your NemKonto approx. 2 weeks after you requested payment.
If you do not apply for payment within the said deadline, the amount will only be paid when you retire or leave the labour market. The amount is taxed as ordinary A-income.
Your holiday pay is calculated from your salary incl. your possible pension contribution (employer's contribution must not be included), any benefits such as free telephone, free car, fixed allowances, bonus / commission, one-time allowance, overtime pay and similar wage shares that you receive as wages for work performed.
Please note that the bonus is included based on when you earned the bonus and not based on when the amount was paid out. If you have earned a bonus in the period 1 September 2019 - 31 August 2020, which you only received payment after the end of the period, the amount must be included in the basis for calculating your holiday pay. If you have received a bonus payment in the period earned before 1 September 2019, this amount must not be included.
Holiday supplements that you have received in the period 1 September 2019 - 31 August 2020 must not be included. Holidays taken during the period must also not be included in the calculation basis. The reason is that you are not entitled to holiday pay from paid holiday or holiday pay.
This means that the holiday you have taken must be deducted with a value of 4.8% of your monthly salary per. held holiday.
If you have earned 8.32 or fewer holidays in the period 1 January - 31 August 2020 and have been in work in the period 1 September - 30 December 2019, you can apply for up to 8.32 fund holiday days, which you can take in the short holiday year 1 May - 31 August 2020.
If you have received payment of foundation holiday days, the amount will be deducted from the holiday pay that you have earned in the period 1 September 2019 - 31 March 2020. The amount that you can apply for payment of until October will then be a lower amount.
If you have been in a job in the period 1 September 2019 - 31 August 2020 and are now unemployed or on early retirement pay, you can apply for payment of the holiday pay without offsetting your unemployment benefit or your early retirement pay. As an unemployed person, you do not earn frozen holiday pay, as holiday pay is only earned from salary and not from unemployment benefits.
