New judgment regarding transfer of undertakings
Our society is highly affected by the corona crisis, and current labour law discussions are mostly related to temporary lay-offs and other forms of cost reduction. Transactions are and will however continue to be relevant, both during the crisis and not to mention when it (hopefully soon) is over.
Temporary lay-off (Nw. "permittering") is an arrangement where the employee's duties lapse in full or in part, and the employer's duty of remuneration lapses correspondingly. Lay-offs are temporary and the employee maintains his/her status as an employee.
