The influential role of employees in Sweden

The Swedish labour law is generally more comprehensive and differs from many other countries’ labour laws. The Employment Protection Act elaborately regulates the process on the notice of termination, dismissal, right of priority in the event of re-employment, among others. The Working Hours Act regulates and applies restrictions on working hours, overtime, and additional work. A brief summary of the Work Environment Authority’s procedures and regulations regarding operational working standards are also provided as part of the course.

The Employment Act on co-determination at the workplace is also a widely elaborate regulation in Sweden as compared to other countries. The trade union movement has had a historic impact on the Swedish labour market, hence have a strongly influential position in decision-making processes in the overall labour market. This means that the trade unions and ultimately, the employees are involved in negotiations and have greater opportunity to impact decision-making.
