Part-time employees

Number of senior days depends on the percentage of your position:

  • 100 % position - 8 days
  • 90 % position - 7,2 days
  • 80 % position - 6,4 days
  • 75 % position - 6 days
  • 70 % position - 5,6 days
  • 60 % position - 4,8 days
  • 50 % position - 4 days

The year you retire

In the year you retire, the withdrawal is calculated proportionately based on when in the year you retire. For example, if you resign on 1 July, you can take half of the agreed number of senior days, i.e. four days. This also applies to part-time employees.

Register senior days in the Self-service portal

You'll see your senior days in the Self service portal "absence quota overview". The form goes directly to your manager. The remaining balance decreases as your supervisor approves your absence requests with the absence type "time off senior 512."

Note that "senior days" cannot be transferred between calendar years. Nor can compensation be agreed with salary for non-discontinued senior days

Additional holidays

The year you turn 60, you have the right to an additional week of vacation. You can use this additional time off consecutively, but not necessarily connected with the rest of your regular holiday.

Holiday pay constitutes 14,3 percent of the rate used to calculate your holiday pay from the year before.
