Danish term or phrase:omsorgsdag
Udover den arbejdstid som bruges ved egentlig tjeneste samt rådighedstjenester, har vi ved beregningen af personalebehovet for lokomotivførere og togpersonale anvendt et tillæg på knapt 30 % udover arbejdstid til ferie, uddannelse, omsorgsdage etc.
Explanation: Family sick day gives a few convincing hits if you google, and would be understood.
In practice it is a 'child's sick day' - which also gives hits on google.
When both parents work, and the child is too sick to go to kindergarten or school, the rule in Denmark has been that one of the parents could take the first day of to arrange for the child to be looked after until he/she was well enough to go back to day care or school.
Many trade unions have been campaigning for more flexible rules to allow better gender equality and more realistic help for parents.
