Ensuring Proper Worker Classification in Denmark, Sweden, and Finland

Proper worker classification is essential to ensure compliance with labor laws and avoid potential legal issues. Misclassification occurs when workers are incorrectly classified as independent contractors instead of employees, denying them certain rights and benefits. In this article, we will explore the challenges of misclassification in Denmark, Sweden, and Finland, and how GTS Nordic can help consultants and temporary workers avoid misclassification as an Employer of Record (EOR).

The Impact of Misclassification:

Misclassification can have significant consequences for both workers and businesses. When workers are misclassified as independent contractors, they may be deprived of essential employment protections and benefits, such as paid leave, social security contributions, and healthcare coverage. It also puts businesses at risk of legal liabilities, including fines and penalties for non-compliance.
