´ ... The normal working week is between 37 and 39 hours ´ comes at the bottom of a page.

... All wage earners are entitled to holiday pay (feriepenge). A little over 12 per cent of each employee´s wages earned during the previous year is paid by the employer to the national holiday fund (FerieGiro). Employers must ensure that each employee receives a holiday fund card (Feriegiro kort) which shows entitlement to holiday pay. This card can be cashed at any post office in Denmark.
