Your rigths

If you do not belong to the Church of Norway, you are entitled to leave of absence for up to two days per calendar year in connection with religious holidays in your religion.

NTNU may require you to work extra to compensate for such days off, and to arrange the date for this in advance. Any compensatory work is not to be regarded as overtime, even if it causes the statutory limit on normal working hours per day or week to be exceeded.

You must notify your immediate superior if you want to use this right.
