14-03-2008 - The Danish Parliament recently passed the Bill to amend the Danish European Works Councils Act which formed part of the Government's legislative programme. The new Act implements the most recent amendment to the underlying Directive. The Bill was described on this website on 16 November 2007.

The new Act has increased the number of seats in what is termed the special negotiating body (from 17 to 27) so as to reflect the present number of Member States. Other than that, the rules governing the special negotiating body, which must still be composed of employee representatives from the countries in which the business or group is operating, will remain unchanged.

The Act became operative on 1 March 2008.
