Denmark introduces new rules for those working from home
Changes to rules on remote working obtain broad political support
Employees are now allowed to use their own work equipment when they are teleworking, as long as it complies with current standards, otherwise, employers are obliged to provide the necessary tools with the only requirement being that employees must work from home for an average of more than two days per week each month.
The new rules, which were approved by all parliamentary groups, have been criticised by HK Denmark, a Danish trade union which considered it a move to push costs that should be borne by employers, onto employees.
The measures are expected to come into effect at the end of April 2022. The government and the various political groups have agreed to meet again in a year’s time to review their implementation.
