LEAVE FOR PERSONAL REASONS

LUXEMBOURG
CONGÉ EXTRAORDINAIRE POUR CONVENANCES PERSONNELLES
LEAVE FOR PERSONAL REASONS

All employees, irrespective of their length of service , are entitled under Luxembourg law to extraordinary paid leave of absence from work of from one to six days for a range of personal circumstances. The events creating entitlement are the day preceding military call-up, the death of a spouse or close relative, marriage or the marriage of a child, a wife's confinement, adoption (failing entitlement to adoption leave ) and moving house. If the event concerned occurs during ordinary annual holidays , it interrupts their duration. Such leave may not be carried over and added to annual holidays. It must be taken at the time of the event or, if it falls on a Sunday, public holiday or day off in lieu , on the next working day.
