The Norwegian government has implemented financial cuts in employee layoffs, intended to ease the company liquidity strain which at the same time shifts the financial burden over on the employee. The employer only has to cover the first 2 days as opposed to the first 15 days as the prior rule stated. As employee it’s important to know what this means for you and what rights you have in the process. As employer it is difficult to know how to weigh the handling of the financial situation against layoofs and in worst case terminations. We can guide you in this dofficult process.
As a consequence of these financial trials many companies may face the brink of bankruptcy. Not everyone can handle several weeks of downtime. Under such circumstances it’s important to have someone to seek council with, capable of explaining the procedures at hand, how the employees should be prepared for what’s to come and how to best carry our a controlled liquidation.
Several insurance matters will also become relevant.
In addition several operational and management issues will arise. Limited liability companies (including public and listed companies) as property and housing corporations are required to hold Annual Assembly within June 30. How does this work in the current situation with people in isolation or quarantenes? Does the General Assembly have to be held as a physical meeting?
