Business Immigration – Employment of foreign labour

Business Immigration - Bech-Bruun

By Bech-Bruun Labour law team

To an increasing extent, Danish employers need to employ qualified foreign labour from non-EU member states.

Consequently, for businesses wishing to employ foreign labour rapidly and efficiently, an increasing need to be familiar with the relevant residence and work permit legislation exists – not least since even a minor violation of the immigration law may be very expensive for the employee as well as for the employer.

The average level of fines in case of a violation is DKK 20,000 per month per employee having worked on an illegal or incorrect basis.

In this respect, Bech-Bruun has prepared a short brochure with information outlining the most central aspects of which employers should be aware in connection with employment of foreign labour.
