If you work as an employee in Norway, the employer is obliged to give you a paid holiday.  If you’ve been working for a full year, you get at least 25 holiday days. Leave cannot be replaced by money and may not be postponed to the next year.


The employer is responsible for the holiday. If this is not in order, the employer may be held liable. Leinonen handles your salary administration and takes care of holidays.
