At some phase your business may have to be reorganized to reflect the changed operating environment. If the company then regularly employs at least 20 employees, the planned changes, their grounds, effects and options must be negotiated before their implementation in accordance with the Act on Co-operation within Undertakings, in a spirit of co-operation in order to reach a consensus .


The main purpose of the aforesaid Act is to improve the operations and operating environment of companies as well as productivity and to increase open communication. It should be noted that the Act includes also other obligations than to negotiate before implementing any decisions on terminations, layoffs, part-time work or amending substantial terms and conditions of the employee's employment agreement unilaterally. In compliance with the  Act, the employer must, inter alia, consult with its personnel when planning work arrangements that do not lead to redundancies, but may result in substantial and permanent amendments in employees' job descriptions.
