COVID-19 and Labour Law: Denmark

Mette Soested, Natalie Videbaek Munkholm


In Denmark, the Corona-virus pandemic has led to a lock-down of society. Schools and shops are closed and many employees are sent home to work. The Government has adopted several measures aiming to mitigate the economic consequences for businesses, especially in respect of redundancies, both via statutory legislation and tripartite agreements. Many measures have been extended during the re-opening of society.
