Employment Law Practice:

It is important for an employer to know the restrictions that apply to his or her room for manoeuvre in an employment relationship and it has not become any easier due to the increasing regulation of the legal relationship between the employer and the employee that has taken place.

Plesner’s labour and employment law department provides advice on all aspects of labour and employment law. We assist our clients with specialist advice, focusing on providing solution-oriented advice that enables our clients to act quickly, efficiently and legally correct when faced with big or small challenges.

We particularly provide legal services to Danish and international businesses, but we also provide legal services to public authorities, institutions and individuals, including managers and executives in particular.

Flexible types of employment

Not only are we very experienced in providing advice on traditional employment issues between the employer and the employee, we also advise on the more flexible types of employment that have evolved as the need for flexibility has increased. Some examples are fixed-term employment, part-time employment, secondment/hiring-out of employees, consultancy issues and teleworking
