Having employees involves obligations, particularly in relation to the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) and the Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority's rules and regulations.
In many small enterprises organised as limited companies, the owner (sole shareholder) is also the only employee. In that situation, you will have obligations in your capacity as owner in relation to yourself as employee. This may seem strange at first.
The most important topics in this context are the working environment, absence and pay conditions.
