Health and Safety Representative enjoyed special protection against dismissal

A health and safety representative without a collective agreement enjoyed special protection against dismissal. This was established by a judgment of 16 August 2016 from the Danish Eastern High Court.

The High Court was to consider whether a health and safety representative enjoyed special protection under Section 10(2) of the Danish Working Environment Act, pursuant to which a health and safety representative is protected against dismissal on an equal footing with shop stewards within relevant or similar business areas.
