Welcome to Norway

We welcome you to Norway as a new jobholder. Many working situations here are certainly going to be different from what you are used to at home.

You are probably aware of many “rules of the game” in Norwegian building and construction. This document contains some information about the most important workplace regulations, information about what you may demand as an employee, as well as what is expected of you.

It is important that you understand these rules in order to enjoy a safe and meaningful workplace environment – at the same level as Norwegian and other foreign colleagues.

What if I am fired without a good reason?

The Working Environment Act includes provisions regarding the termination of working conditions, for the loss of jobs, and resignations. This assumes that written conditions for employment exist.

– Dismissals and resignations are to occur in writing, and shall include information regarding the employee’s right to demand negotiations and enact legal proceedings, as well as the right to remain in his/her position.

–The employee may make a claim for monetary compensation if the loss of employment or the dismissal was unlawful.

More about this is included in the main article.

A preferred worker

You will find important tips about personal safety equipment in this guide, as well as information about safety harnesses, working at a height, working with chemicals, datasheets, machines, and frequently used equipment.

By being informed about these practices in Norwegian work life, you will become a preferred worker. Make sure you mention this knowledge in your cover letter when applying for your new job.

You will have the comfort of being in control of what requirements there are for you and the requirements there are for your employer.

Work in Norway

Finding work in Norway was a bit of a challenge for me mainly due to the language barrier. Luckily I have found my way into a company that ran by some awesome people and along with my hard work and dedication I have been able to pick up some actual paid hours. I am beyond grateful for this opportunity.
