If you purchase a company’s activities, special rules apply to the transfer of the company’s employees, including, i.a., the duty to provide information and to negotiate. These rules follow from the Danish Act on Transfer of Undertakings, which imposes an obligation on both the buyer and the seller.
NJORD Law Firm’s lawyers advise both the seller and the buyer of the consequences in relation to employment law that result from the transfer of a company’s activities. Read more about NJORD Law Firm’s employment law advice.
