It is the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs that has overriding responsibility for the Government’s labour policy.

Labour immigration

Immigrant workers bring essential expertise to the Norwegian labour market and help meet the demand for labour in several sectors. They work within various professions.  Some migrant workers move to Norway to live here while others only stay for a short period of time.

The working environment and safety

Enterprises are themselves responsible for preventing accidents and harm to health as a result of work. Employers have a duty to ensure that the working environment is both safe and satisfactory.
