Labour Market Rights

When you’re employed in a student job in Denmark, there are important factors you should take into consideration. The labour market conditions that apply to the broader Danish workforce are, in general, also applicable to you. This is due to what, in the media often is referred to, as the "Danish model".

The Danish model is where the partners of the Danish labour market, collectively negotiate agreements on pay and working conditions for their employees. This means that, when you are employed in a company that has an agreement with a trade union, you can be sure that the conditions agreed between the partners of the labour market also apply to you. This includes things such as pay, holidays, as well as health and safety regulations.

In the links below, you can find basic information about the Danish labour market, as well as the trade unions.
