The New Danish Holiday Act & Employee Central

The New Danish Holiday Act & Employee Central

In order to comply with EU laws and regulations in regards to holidays, a new Danish Holiday Act has been passed. The new Holiday Act will change the Danish holiday system on a fundamental level. When the law goes into force on 1 September 2020, all employers in Denmark must adopt this act. It is important to be aware of the implications this will have on employment contracts and HR policies.

Concurrent holidays

The new law introduces so-called “concurrent holiday”. This means that employees will now be able to take out their paid holiday in the same year as that in which the holiday entitlement is accumulated.

Furthermore, the act involves a transitional arrangement which will facilitate the transition from offset holidays from the current system to concurrent holiday.

What does that mean for SuccessFactors EC users?

If you already have SuccessFactors Time Off integrated in to your Employee Central solution, you do not have to worry. GP Strategies have developed a solution that will give you a smooth transition from the old logic to the new rules.

If you have EC but another Time management system

The new Danish Holiday Law will mean an extensive upgrade of your current system. If you have been considering SuccessFactors Time Off but have decided against it for practical and/or economic reasons, now is the ideal time to change and take advantage of this game changer to streamline your current setup.
