If a Danish company sends an employee to temporarily work abroad it is defined as an expatriation.
Members of DI can now customize and download agreements in English for this purpose.
The new agreements are based on that the employment during the expatriation is governed by Danish law. Therefore you must consider whether it is expedient to agree on Danish law as the governing law, and whether this choice of law is valid according to the laws of the expatriation country.
If you are planning on expatriating an employee, and you need help, you can always contact DI for advice: 3377 3377.
You can choose between two expatriate service agreements in DI Document Generator:
In addition to the mandatory paragraphs, which all employment contracts must comprise, you can add paragraphs concerning:
In the agreements you cannot add a non-competition and/or non-solicitation clause. If you need such clauses when you are expatriating an employee, it is important to ensure that the clauses can be maintained in relation to the expatration country’s legislation. We recommend that you contact DI for advice if you need such clauses in an expatriation context.
The expatriate service agreements are available in both English and Danish.
