Helping you understand the Norwegian labor law

Many Norwegian employers struggle to grasp the comprehensive and obligatory protections afforded to employees under Norwegian labor law.

For foreign employers, understanding this can be even more challenging, particularly when navigating mandatory holiday and holiday pay systems, strict regulations on working hours, and rules concerning termination of employment.
