Denmark -Clash with Ryanair continues -June 23, 2015

Ryanair's Irish contracts avoid rules on wages, social benefits, and worker protections required by Danish laws.

Ryanair was summoned before a labour tribunal in Copenhagen on June 15 to defend the practice at the centre of a long pending controversy (see also earlier Newsletters): its hiring of Denmark-based pilots and cabin crew on Irish labour contracts. Ryanair says the arrangement, which it uses in other countries, is legal and that its employees ‘enjoy high pay [and] job security’. Critics say it allows Ryanair to avoid rules on wages, social benefits, and worker protections required by Danish laws. The tribunal is reviewing the case.
