Do you provide your employees with written contracts?
Norwegian law requires you to provide a written contract for all types of employment. Moreover, if the employment exceeds the duration of one month, you as an employer are required to offer your employees a written contract as soon as possible, but no later than one month after the employment has commenced. This means that, under Norwegian law, the written work contract is the cornerstone of any employment relationship.
Due to its crucial role in the workplace, any work contract constitutes the basis for the settlement of potential labor disputes. It is therefore essential that contracts are adequately assessed before signing.

Meanwhile, proposed amendments to the hiring rules are still being considered by the Government.
