Expand your business into one of Europe's most stable economies using our PEO services in Norway
Growing its economy even when the rest of the world has suffered economic shocks, Norway is seen to have one of the most stable economies in Europe.
With a varied economy that excels in oil and gas, aquaculture, maritime and tourism, combined with a generous social safety net and exceptional work-life balance, Norway is popular with expanding businesses as well as a hit with their employees.
Despite its appeal to employers and employees alike, expanding into Norway can be challenging. Firstly, setting up a legal entity in Norway, as in other countries, can be a difficult and time-consuming process that comes laden with red tape. Meanwhile, employers must navigate Norway's employment laws. The Norwegian Working Environment Act (Arbeidsmiljøloven) highlights the regulations that employers and employees must abide to. These include, but are not limited to:
- 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
While there is no set minimum wage in Norway certain sectors, such as construction and hospitality, have different set minimum wages which employers must adhere to. 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 other business expansion stipulations can makes expansion into Norway a challenging affair. This is where our expert PEO services come in.
