Swedish Labour and Employment legislation

Swedish employment legislation has seen extensive reforms in recent years. The framework has been modernised, harmonised (EU directives) and broadened to include areas such as anti-discrimination laws, employment types, and a new working hours act. Many employers find it difficult 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.
