Abolition of great prayer day

Last year, the decision was made to discontinue the Great Prayer Day as a Danish public holiday, starting from January 1, 2024.
This webinar will explore the specifics of this legislative change and what it means for Danish employers:
  • Why was the Great Prayer Day abolished?
  • Working hours will increase by a standard workday - How should employers adapt?
  • How does this affect salaried versus hourly employees?
  • Is this law applicable to all?
  • What are the implications for holiday pay and pensions?
