On 1 September, 2019, the transition period for the new Holiday Act in Denmark begins. But the significant changes in TimePlan will commence on 1 May, 2020. TimePlan System Developer Torben Larsen is responsible for the new holiday rules in TimePlan and gives an overview of the upcoming changes.
In TimePlan, the accumulation and settlement of holidays is a significant element in the life of an employee. Therefore, TimePlan System Developer Torben Larsen has worked hard in recent months to ensure that TimePlan takes the new holiday rules into account from the new TimePlan release version 7.18, which will be released at the end of August 2019.
“With the new August release, TimePlan can now handle the so-called mini-holiday year,” says Torben Larsen from the Aalborg office. “Later this year, we will come up with an additional release where TimePlan can handle the new holiday rules in 2020.”

The new Holiday Act is being introduced because of the decision to have similar holiday rules in the EU. The transition phase will begin on 1 September, 2019 and will run for one year. The new holiday rules change the way Danish employees earn holidays, but everyone is still entitled to 25 days of holiday each year.
Torben Larsen encourages all TimePlan customers to participate in the release webinars in Danish on 10 September, 2019 and in English and Swedish on 11 September, 2019.
“During the webinar, we will present how you, as a TimePlan user, can create a new rule in TimePlan’s holiday module, which normally starts with the holiday earning year on 1 January, 2019. This holiday earning has always happened over a period of 12 months, but with the new release, you can now state that the accumulation of vacation should only last eight months until 31 August, 2019. The holiday will take place from 1 May to 30 September, 2020, the so-called mini-holiday year. The new rules for accumulating and settling holidays, also called concurrent holidays, will come into effect as of 1 September, 2020,” explains Torben Larsen.
