Right to work - right to live

The Danish labour market is known to have some of the best working conditions in the world.

When you work in Denmark you have the right to:

  • paid holiday 
  • maternity leave 
  • sick days
  • breaks during the work day
  • the right not to work more than 48 hours a week including over time (measured as an average over a 4 months' period) 

As a member of a trade union you also have the right to work with a minimum salary and many other benefits. The trade union also serves as a lawyer if the salary and working conditions do not follow the Danish standards.

Visit the Danish trade union 3F's website to see the minimum wage in your industry.
