Employment rights are regulated by law or specified in the contract with the employer.


Faroese employers are obliged to insure all employees against work related injuries. The employee or his or her next of kin is entitled to compensation in case of injury, disease or death in connection with carrying out work.


Employees who have a Faroese retirement pension are normally supplementary insured against consequences of disability, serious disease and death.
