ABOUT THE NATIONAL CONTEXT FOR OPENING UP SHOP
Companies establishing a business activity in Norway are advised to obtain current and detailed information from professionals, as they must comply with the same regulations as Norwegian enterprises. Furthermore, Norwegian employment law is very employee friendly compared to many countries. The employers must comply with the requirements of the Working Environment Act (WEA), and the rules cannot be waived by agreement to the detriment of the employee.
