Which days during summer are paid holidays?
11 July (Flemish community day) and 2 September (Leuven fair) are not paid holidays for student employees who work at KU Leuven.
This day is an additional paid holiday for regular KU Leuven personnel according to the Collective Labour Agreement (CLA). This, however, does not apply for student employees.
At other companies, this day is normally a working day.
Student employees at KU Leuven:
If you did not work on this day, you should not fill in any hours on your timesheet. This day will not be taken into account for the calculation of the 50 days as it is not paid. If you do work, please do fill out the hours you actually work on your timesheet and be aware that this day does count for the calculation of the 50 days.
21 July (National holiday) falls on a Sunday and will not be paid (unless you actually work). As you do not receive any payment for this day, it will not be taken into account for the calculation of the 50 days.
15 August (Assumption Day) is a paid holiday.
You do not normally work on this day, but you are entitled to payment for it. If you are paid for this day, it will be taken into account for the calculation of the 50 working days.
STUDENT EMPLOYEES AT KU LEUVEN:
If you are a student employee who works at KU Leuven but you didn’t work on 21 July, you should not fill in any hours on your timesheet. You normally will receive payment for this day automatically.
