Denmark: Proposed changes with regard to working conditions of seconded employees
Denmark: Working conditions of seconded employees
The Ministry of Employment proposed changes to the rules with regard to the working conditions of seconded employees (that is, workers posted to assignments in Denmark).
As proposed, the legislative measures would be effective retroactively from 30 July 2020.
In general, the provisions would aim for equal treatment for seconded employees in relation to the pay and working conditions while they are in Denmark. If adopted in the current form, the measures would result in several changes in the Danish employment law.
