Coming to a new country to work can bring a lot of questions to mind. How does the Danish labour market work? What characterizes Danish work culture? How am I insured if I become unemployed? How can I find a job for my spouse? What about pension?
Where to find it
You can find the answers for these and many more questions by consulting the Workindenmark website, or by contacting them at one of their four offices in Denmark.
Workindenmark is a public service organ specialising in helping foreign workers find work in Denmark, helping accompanying spouses find work, and helping international students find student jobs. Furthermore they provide a lot of useful information about working in Denmark.
To learn more about the Danish labour market, terms of employment, unemployment insurance, work culture, pensions schemes and much more, we strongly encourage you to consult the Workindenmark website: www.workindenmark.dk.
The trade unions play a pivotal role in the Danish labour market, and there is a high level of union membership among Danish workers. Under the Danish model, employers and employees reach voluntary collective agreements on pay and working conditions, as opposed to by legislation.
