Wage guaranteeThe page was last modified:
A wage guarantee is a form of protection for you if your employer enters into bankruptcy or restructuring and you do not receive your salary.
The wage guarantee means that you can receive compensation for the salary or wage that your employer owes you. The wage guarantee applies when your employer is declared bankrupt or enters into restructuring. The administrators for bankruptcy or restructuring, appointed by the district court, will determine whether you are entitled to a wage guarantee and how much money you should receive.
The wage guarantee ensures that you receive your severance pay for the severance period when your employment ends.
If you are entitled to a wage guarantee, the County Administrative Board (Länsstyrelsen) will pay your salary.
