“No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance”- Martin Luther King Jr., 1963
Our lawyers have specialist expertise in employment law and assist employers and employees with employment law matters. If you are not a member of the union or if you instead want to be represented by a professional legal representative, you can book a time free of charge for an initial legal assessment.
To be allowed to work in Sweden, it is required in most cases that you have been granted a work permit in Sweden. Applying for a work permit can sometimes be cumbersome and bureaucratic. We regularly assist clients and their employers in the process of applying for a work permit and applying to extend previously granted work permits. We can provide legal advice on the requirements placed on both the employer and the individual. Getting support and help from an experienced lawyer often contributes to a faster application process by making the application complete and correct from the beginning, which benefits both employees and employers. If you previously worked during your asylum process in Sweden with the so-called AT-UND (exemption from work permit) and your asylum application was rejected, we can help you apply for a change of track. The main rule for being granted a work permit is that the application must have been submitted and granted before entry into Sweden, but there are some exceptions, for example when changing tracks.
