Fair pay and working conditions for you and your colleagues

Copenhagen against social dumping

The City of Copenhagen have since 2011 countered social dumping by demanding fair pay and working conditions for every employee working on assignments for the City of Copenhagen. This also ensures fair competition for companies with proper structures, when they bid on assignments for the City of Copenhagen. From January 2017 those receiving aid and subsidies were also covered by demands through contractual requirements in the form of clauses.

Contractual requirements

The demand for fair pay and working conditions is a part of the contract with the City of Copenhagen by way of a labour clause. Additionally, some suppliers are also covered by education and employment clauses, where it is possible to educate trainees and apprentices or employ unemployed persons for an assignment.

An action team in charge of controlling the conditions

To ensure that these clauses are followed, the City of Copenhagen has an internal action team.

Among other tasks, the action team makes unannounced control visits to our suppliers and partners to ensure that they have proper conditions.
