Swedish employment legislation

Swedish employment legislation has seen extensive reform in recent years. The framework has been modernised, harmonised (with EU directives) and broadened to include areas such as anti-discrimination laws, employment types, and a new working hours act. Many employers find it impossible to keep up with the changes and adopt a proactive approach to HR relations. This area is of the utmost importance and is also rather costly, especially in knowledge-intensive organisations.
