A new tripartite agreement will ensure that employers have the right to request a corona passport from employees

In the year between 1 November 2020 and 1 November 2021 employers had the right to require employees be tested for COVID-19 and inform the employer of the result. The legislation that provided employers with those rights lapsed on 1 November 2021.

The Danish government, the Trade Unions’ Main Organisation and the Danish Employers’ Association have agreed to recommend to the Danish parliament that the legislation be reinstated so that employers are once again given those rights and furthermore that the law should also give employers the right to request that their employees show a valid corona passport when coming into the workplace.

The new agreement stipulates that the legislation should give employers the right to request a valid corona passport as long as COVID-19 is considered a socially critical disease. It will be up to each individual employer to decide if they want to implement a requirement that employees have a valid corona passport, but the legislation will give them the legal basis to do so.

A valid corona passport consists of a negative COVID-19 test, proof of immunity or proof of vaccination.
