New Legislation on Permanent and Temporary Employment

New Legislation Enacted

Author: Ole Kristian Olsby, Partner – Homble Olsby advokatfirma

Recent amendments in the Norwegian Working Environment Act, which become effective on January 1, 2019, prohibit employers from employing workers permanently without guaranteeing their salary. These employment contracts have been common in the temp agency businesses and must meet the conditions of temporary employment, which are very strict in Norway.
