Indem – legal help to foreign workers in Norway

Our employment lawyers have broad experience with helping foreign workers in Norway.

Advokat Cathrine Semb Skaarbrevik

Why Indem?

Indem has a department working only with labor law cases, where we represent private clients in disputes against their employer. From our experience working with foreign employees, we see that foreign employees often come to Norway without sufficient knowledge about the legal rights provided them through Norwegian employment legislation or collective agreements. Unfortunately, this can make foreign employees vulnerable to unlawful actions carried out by their employers.

When a conflict arises, many people find themselves hesitant to contact a lawyer because they are afraid they cannot afford the legal costs. In order to make sure that your financial situation is not what stops you from accessing legal help, we offer our services on a «no cure – no pay» basis.
