Dear colleagues, this is a gentle reminder of our current restrictions on the transfer of holiday. As you are well aware, we are in a period of cost cutting.
One of the cost items that has been reviewed is the cost charged to the department for unused holiday and flextime. All unpaid holiday and flex time is highlighted as a cost in our budget.
Due to this, the department will not allow the transfer of holiday until 2024. Previously transferred holiday must also be completed in the current year.
The transfer of holiday can only be agreed in exceptional cases, and this is limited to holidays that cannot be taken on the basis of sick leave or absence due to sickness. This is agreed directly with the head of administration, who approves holiday transfers in the self-service portal
We currently do not give any guidance on taking flextime beyond what UiB has as guidelines.
