Some of our colleagues in our international alliance Ius Laboris have published articles to provide guidance for employers on how to navigate the coronavirus situation.
The articles can be found here. Additional guidance will be added on a continuous basis, and Danish employers may draw inspiration in relation to deciding what steps can be taken to address the situation in the best possible way.
The content of the above is not, and should not be a substitute for legal advice.
