You are entitled to a holiday allowance of 8% of your income. Your income consists of your salary supplemented with a number of allowances. For more information on the definition of salary and income, see the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities. The holiday allowance is paid out in May.
If your contract begins or ends in the middle of the year, your holiday allowance will be adjusted pro rata.
You are entitled to an end-of-year bonus of 8.3% of your annual income up to a minimum of € 2250 (based on full-time employment and a full working year). The end-of-year bonus is paid out in December. If your contract begins or ends in the middle of the year, your end-of-year bonus will be adjusted pro rata.
You can consult and download your payslip via Self Service. This also applies to your annual statement. In principle, the University does not issue paper payslips. To explain a number of terms and abbreviations, we have created a payslip example (PDF). This document also illustrates a number of variable elements such as the Individual Choices Model.
Sociaal Fonds OCW
As a university employee you can participate in the Social Fund OCW. This fund provides financial assistance to employees who find themselves in social difficulties due to financial circumstances. Would you like to apply for help from the Social Fund? Then you will need a recommendation from the Department of Safety, Health and Environment (VGM).
