CA Legal Support for employees
CA Legal Support is a part of CA+ and covers feedback on employment contracts, employment conditions, dismissal and more. We advise you to sign up today, as there is a waiting period.
There is no waiting time if you already registered for CA+ while you were a student.
With a CA+ membership, CA Legal Support gives you these advantages for only 50 DKK per month:
- Legal counselling on employment issues via telephone, letter or email, including a review of employment contracts and questions concerning employment conditions, dismissal, etc.
- Legal assistance in disagreements over employment law, including correspondence with employers, participation in settlement conferences and court procedures.
- Legal assistance does not require trade union membership.
What types of legal assistance are covered?
CA Legal Support covers issues related to employment law – for example, counselling and legal assistance in legal disagreements, such as dismissal during parental leave or unjustified dismissal. Correspondence with employers, participation in settlement conferences and court proceedings are also covered. These issues would typically require help from a trade union.
What does CA Legal Support cost?
CA Legal Support is a part of CA+ and offers you a financially attractive alternative that may save you thousands of kroner each year, in particular if you are (or plan to become) a member of a trade union to seek legal advice with employment issues. With a monthly membership fee of only 50 DKK, CA+ is an extremely attractive alternative, as it gives you - among other things - the same legal protection and assistance as a trade union membership could give you. As an extra bonus, the membership fee is tax-deductible, just like trade union and unemployment fund membership.
A low-price alternative to trade union membership
CA Legal Support offers legal advice and feedback to members with legal questions about employment contracts, employment conditions, dismissal, etc. CA’s lawyers are also available to assist you in disagreements over employment law. You can trust that the membership fee you pay to CA+ does not go to finance lobbying activity, strike funds, etc., as it would with many trade unions. Here you get what we believe you deserve: the knowledge that you will always have a strong team backing you in conciliation meetings and court proceedings.
There is a waiting period for CA Legal Support – register with CA+ now
There is usually a six-month waiting period for CA Legal Support, after which you can draw on all the advantages of the scheme. However, from day one you have access to brief telephone or email counselling (up to 5 minutes) about the terms and conditions of your employment. If you need a review of your employment contract within the first six months of your membership, a one-time fee of 750 DKK will be charged. To avoid this, we recommend that you register with CA+ today.
Can I avoid the waiting time for CA Legal Support?
When you register with CA Legal Support, you should be aware there is usually a six-month waiting period. However, if you had uninterrupted membership of a trade union for at least 6 months before your registration with CA+, the six-month rule does not apply, and you will have full cover from CA Legal Support in cases arising after your registration. If you joined CA+ as a student member and continue your membership, you likewise avoid the waiting time.
How does membership of CA+ work?
- CA+ is an independent association funded by its own membership fees.
- CA’s unemployment fund thus has no financial ties to CA+.
- CA+ is available only to members of CA unemployment fund.
What types of legal advice are not covered by the scheme?
The scheme covers only legal assistance with issues concerning employment law. The scheme thus does not concern work-related injuries and other legal services, such as writing wills, etc.
