WHAT to expect

Norway Employment Law

The 2.8 million Norwegian workers are protected by the Working Environment Act (Arbeidsmiljøloven). Unions set additional requirements in collective bargaining agreements for 50% of Norwegian workers.

The standard working week in Norway is 37.5-40 hours a week, worked over 5 days per week. Any hours worked over 40 per week, or 9 per day are considered to be overtime.


Payroll in Norway

In Norway, the payroll frequency is set in the employment contract by mutual agreement between the employer and employee. There is a mandated minimum payment frequency of once per month.


There is no mandated requirement for a 13th salary payment in Norway.


Norway has no minimum wage mandated at a national level. Instead, various collective agreements stipulate various minimum wages across different sectors, industries and specific occupations.

Working hours in Norway

The maximum shift length is 13 hours in a 24 hour period, with a minimum continuous break of 11 hours mandated between shifts.


Overtime is only permitted in exceptional circumstances and for a brief period of time. Overtime as a permanent arrangement is not permitted.

For the general workforce, overtime hours may not exceed 10 hours over a period of seven days, 25 hours over a period of four consecutive weeks, and 200 hours over a period of 52 consecutive weeks.​​

Terminations in Norway

Except for situations when a fixed-term contract has ended or during the probationary period, terminations must be for cause. Before making a final termination decision, employers must inform their staff of their desire to do so.


In Norway, severance packages are not mandated by law. An employee’s salary and other contractual benefits will continue as normal during the notice period.

Frequently Asked Questions

Payrolling the employees is a key part of the service offered by an employer of record company.

The client will be invoiced in advance by the EOR company, for the total cost of the payroll.

At Agility EOR, our approach is that we never forget that our business is all about people. Our Employer of Record solutions are tailored to each requirement, not a one-size-fits-all tech platform.

We pride ourselves on our personable-approach so once you enter your new employees details into our dedicated platform, we’ll arrange a call with you to go through the details of the employment contract where together we can review and amend to your requirements. We liaise directly with your employee to build a rapport and obtain the necessary information to hire them compliantly, and set them up ready for their first payroll.

We never stop delivering! Even if you’re employee has been onboarded and is happily working for you and being paid each month, we’re here to partner with you whenever you or your employees need us. Even your ex-employees may need our assistance for tax documents, proof of employment requests etc… Our service never stops!
