Sweden: New rules require foreign employers to notify authorities about employees posted in Sweden

Global Watch ()

The Swedish parliament has passed a law whereby foreign employers must report their employees seconded to Sweden to the authorities. The law requires a contact person in Sweden to be registered who is authorized to receive notices on behalf of the employer and provide documents to show that requirements under Swedish law regarding stationed employees are met. The authorities have issued brief regulations detailing the reporting requirements. The rules apply from July 1, 2013 and affect foreign employers inside and outside the European Union.
