Standard vacation for teachers, researchers etc. *
According to the local collective agreement, your annual vacation is considered to have been used all at once during the part of the summer when no teaching takes place, beginning on the Monday after Midsummer in June. This is known as ‘standard vacation’. The standard vacation is entered into the system annually, in October, by the Personnel Administration and Payroll Unit (part of the Human Resources Division), which means that you do not need to apply for vacation time individually.
If you have applied for and been granted single vacation days (up to ten days in total) to be used before midsummer, the remainder will still be entered in the system as standard vacation beginning on the Monday after Midsummer.
If you want to use your vacation at times other than the summer, i.e. to be exempt from the standard vacation rule, a written agreement between you and your head of department or equivalent must be submitted to the Personnel Administration and Payroll Unit by May 31st. The exemption applies to the current year only. If this is granted, you apply for vacation time using the online form in Primula Web for each occasion.
