The Danish Viewpoint

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


Do workers posted to Denmark get the agreed sectoral minimum wages?, do they get similar wages to local workers?, and do Danish practices of calculating minimum wages paid to posted workers conform with the EU Posted Workers Directive? These are the three main questions being answered by this article. The three answers are in brief: 1. "yes-but" - most posted workers are covered by collective agreements, but foreign employers are less subject to such agreements than the Danish ones; 2. "no-but" - posted workers get lower, but only slightly lower wages on average; and 3." yes-but" there are examples of nonconformance.
