If your employment is terminated by your employer, your employer’s notice period depends on the duration of your employment with the company.
The following shows the notice period applicable to your employer under the Danish Salaried Employees Act.
- Less than 6 months: 1 month. If you are subject to a trial or probationary period, your employer has the right to terminate your employment with 14 days’ notice within the first three months.
- 6 months - 3 years: 3 months (notice before the end of 2 years and 9 months of employment)
- 3 years - 6 years: 4 months (notice before the end of 5 years and 8 months of employment)
- 6 years - 9 years: 5 months (notice before the end of 8 years and 7 months of employment)
- 9 years +: 6 months (notice before the end of 8 years and 7 months of employment)
Then it rises no further.
Note that if a termination is made after 5 ½ months of employment, the notice of termination is three months, not one month. This is because you – with a notice period of 1 month – has been employed for more than 6 months at the time of termination.
Extended period of notice
There may be agreed mutually extended period of notice of the employment contract by the employer in this case must respect.
Obligation to work
During your notice period you are under obligation to continue working as usual unless otherwise agreed.
