BAL has received additional details about the new registration requirement set to go into effect on July 1. The requirement applies to all employees who are not on a local contract and who began work in the past five years. It also includes all business trips longer than five days. If any information reported during registration should change, the specific change(s) must be reported within three days. This includes details about the location where the work will be performed.

There will be stiff penalties and fines for non-compliance. Please note that the Work Environment Authority call center cannot answer questions on whether individual cases require registration, since details of tax and social security status play a role. BAL will assist clients in registering their employees as soon as possible. Please contact BAL with questions about how to comply with the new requirement.

Over the next few days, the Swedish government is expected to release additional details, which BAL will provide as they become available.
