A thorough understanding of how public sector labour and employment law interacts with public law is a prerequisite – together with a good measure of political insight – to advising clients in this area
Norrbom Vinding acts as legal adviser to large parts of the public sector.
Labour and employment law for public authorities and businesses that are wholly or partly publicly owned is a special discipline which requires knowledge of and respect for the rules which are peculiar to public authorities, together with an equal measure of understanding of and respect for public sector culture and for the fact that public authorities and publicly owned businesses play an important role in society and are under political management or control.
We have experience in all aspects of advising public sector employers in our areas of expertise and regularly provide legal opinions to public authorities, undertake investigations and carry out legal inquiries – and, not least, represent them in court.
We have long-standing experience in dismissal cases, cases concerning discrimination and differential treatment, public service law, collective bargaining matters, including negotiation of collective agreements, matters concerning managers and executives, etc.
We are also the law firm that has conducted the greatest number of cases concerning public sector labour and employment law before the Danish Labour Court, industrial arbitration tribunals, dismissals tribunals and the ordinary courts.
