Norway EOR Services - Proposal Request

Our employer of record (EOR) services supports your expansion into one of Europe's most stable economies.

With a stable economy that has seen steady growth despite global economic challenges, Norway is an increasingly popular choice for expanding businesses. 

Excelling in oil and gas, aquaculture, maritime and tourism Norway has an incredibly varied economy. Not only this, the country has a generous social safety net and exceptional work-life balance. All in all, this makes Norway a popular with expanding businesses as well as a hit with their employees.  

While Norway offers ample benefits to businesses and employees alike, expanding into Norway isn't easy. As with other countries, setting up a legal entity in Norway is a challenging, time-consuming process that can put the brakes on your global expansion before it has even started.

Then, there's Norway's employment laws, including: 

  • Working day must not exceed nine hours or 40 hours a week
  • Overtime must be paid at an increase of 40% 
  • Workers are entitled to at least: 11 hours continuous off-duty time per 24 hours - 35 hours continuous off-duty period per 7 days
  • Night work (between 21:00 and 06:00) and Sunday work is not permitted unless necessitated by the nature of work. 
  • Employees are entitled to a written employment contract whether employment is temporary or permanent
  • Employees are entitled to 4 weeks and 1 day of paid holiday as outlined in the Holiday Act

The above regulations, and further employment laws, are set out in The Norwegian Working Environment Act (Arbeidsmiljøloven). While The Norwegian Working Environment Act does not specifically outline a minimum wage certain sectors, such as construction and hospitality, have different set minimum wages which employers must adhere to. Likewise, Contractual Agreements with trade unions may also provide additional employment requirements not outlined in The Norwegian Working Environment Act.

Managing employment laws on top of growing your business can makes expansion into Norway a challenging affair. This is where our expert EOR services come in.   

What is an Employer of Record?

Sometimes known as a PEO, an Employer of Record takes the legal responsibility of employee management and HR from your shoulders when you are hiring in Norway. Essentially a Norway employer of record will:

  • Organise employment contracts
  • Comply with local employment laws
  • Pay taxes 
  • Run payroll 
  • Organise employee benefits

An EOR ensures that you can expand into Norway without a legal entity and with full reassurance that you comply with The Norwegian Working Environment Act. However, you still remain responsible for the day-to-day management of your employee, allowing you to build a thriving global team. 

Why do you need an Employer of Record in Norway?

With Norwegian employment laws affecting employment contracts, taxes, benefits, visa applications, payroll and insurances, in-depth knowledge of such regulations are paramount. However, endeavouring to comply with Norwegian employment laws or set up a legal entity using internal resources can leave you at risk of non-compliance. Meanwhile, taking budget, staff and time from other critical areas of your business can also be damaging to your growth plans. This is where our Employer of Record services come in. 

With extensive experience and expertise on The Norwegian Working Environment Act, a Norwegian EOR can save you time, money and resources when expanding your business. Therefore, you can remove the stress and liability of employment laws from your shoulders whilst still reaping the benefits of Norway's diverse, growing economy.
