Collective bargaining agreements and cooperation agreements

We provide assistance with collective labor law and collective agreements.

In Denmark, collective bargaining agreements play an important role in the relation between employers and employee. The collective bargaining agreements have a significant impact on employment conditions. Many areas are not regulated by legislation, but by collective bargaining agreements, such as for instance minimum pay and to a certain extent also work hours.

The Danish model is part of the Nordic collective bargaining model used in the Scandinavian Countries.

The Danish model is characterized in that the framework for wages and employment conditions is very often created through bargaining between trade unions and employers’ associations.

We assist employers who are not members of an employers’ association, in relation to employment issues concerning the employer’s own employees, by drawing up staff policies and negotiating collective agreements.

Further, we assist employee organizations and pension funds when they have to act according to the Danish employment legislation in relation to their own employees. Please see below under “Employee organizations and pension funds in the role as employers”.
