In case of an emergency, you may be eligible for additional leave. An emergency is a sudden event taking place in your private life requiring your immediate attention and thus making it impossible for you to work. Examples include a burst pipe or your partner going into labour. Leave will be granted for as long as is necessary to solve the initial problems. You will receive a maximum of two days' emergency leave per year. Please inform your manager about the emergency as soon as possible and indicate how long you think the situation will last for. You can apply for emergency leave via the 'Application for leave' web application. Please do so once the emergency is over.
