Benefits in Denmark

Mandatory Employee Benefits in Denmark

According to the Danish Working Environmental Act, the employer is obliged to ensure that employees can carry out the work safely and correctly. This means that the employer must ensure that the employees have the necessary equipment to carry out the work, including a computer, mobile phone, internet etc.

Furthermore, if the employee has any expenses to carry out the work, the employer must refund these.

If the employee is allowed to use company-paid equipment (e.g. computer, internet and mobile phone) for private purposes, please note that this is taxable with approx. DKK 242 per month.
