Denmark - Atypical workers confronted with poor conditions - August 31, 2017

A study of the conditions for atypical employees, commissioned by trade union confederation LO, reveals that the number of the temporary workers has been stable since the turn of the millennium, but the number of part-time workers has increased. Furthermore, atypical employees are experiencing increasingly poorer conditions and rights. They stand a much greater risk of not getting pay during sickness, pay when taking time off to care for a sick child, pay during maternity/paternity leave or the collective agreement-guaranteed sixth week of paid holidays.
