Changes in The Working Environment Act will come into force from the 1th of July this year and will allow employers to hire temporary workers without any specific reason (contrary to the main rule which is that all employees shall be hired on a permanent basis). The intention is to give people outside the working life a chance to try working, and to give business greater flexibility. Some limits in this liberalization are made to prevent employers to hire on temporary basis only. There are also changes which permits longer working hours and permission to work several Sundays in a row. In addition, the current limit of termination of employment on account of age is increased from 70 years to 72 years. At the same time the company-specific age limit of 67 is increased to minimum 70 years. The changes in The Working Environment Act imply a radical change to the current legislation and will have huge practical significance. The changes have received a mixed welcome, and several of the national unions have warned political actions against the proposals. Some have already completed such actions.
