Leaves and absences

A standard working week at the FRA is 37,5 hours. Staff members are entitled to 24 days of annual leave plus FRA holidays (17-18 per year) which follow to a large extent the EU holiday calendar.

On top of this entitlement, additional leave days are granted for age, grade and distance from the place of origin.

Special leave is granted for certain circumstances such as marriage, birth or adoption of a child, death of a close relative, etc
