Implications of EU company law directives for worker involvement: A ‘best case’ study from Denmark

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


This chapter provides an account of a specific cross-border merger that can in some ways be seen as a ‘best case’ of the interaction between worker rights in national and EU law. Specifically, it looks at a merger between two insurance companies of roughly the same size – the Danish company Codan and the Swedish firm Trygg-Hansa – in 2015. It provides an outline of the merger, focusing specifically on the involvement of employee representatives in the process.
