Possibility of sending employees partially home without pay

Parliament has agreed on numerous initiatives that shall help remedy some of the economic consequences from the partial lockdown of Denmark due to Corona. One of the central initiatives is a relaxation of the rules concerning ‘arbejdsfordeling’ (work distribution). The scheme gives you the possibility of not paying your employees for a period – without having to fire the employees.

Arbejdsfordeling (work distribution) reduces the work hours so that employees share what work there is at the company, and in the remaining time the employees will be considered unemployed.

The employees will receive their normal salary when working, and the employees who are members of an a-kasse, will receive unemployment benefits as a supplement when there are not working.

Read more about the scheme here (in Danish).

Compensation schemes

As a business you can utilize several different compensation schemes from the state. This applies to e.g.:

  • Payment of salary for employees who have been sent home
  • Lost revenue
  • Lost B-income (B-indkomst)
  • Fixed costs
  • Expenses in relation to cancelled events
