Danish holiday home agencies and the Covid-19 pandemic situation
The Covid-19 pandemic has led to temporary border closings within Europe since March 2020.
In the spring, the Danish government decided to close the border with Germany to those entering Denmark for tourist holidays. Many German holidaymakers who had rented a holiday home in Denmark for Easter or Whitsun could no longer cross the border to Denmark and could not use the booked holiday home as intended.
Some large holiday home agencies still refuse to reimburse the rental payments that have already been made or do withhold 80% of them without having provided any service on their part. They interpret both Danish law and their own terms and conditions to the detriment of the respective tenant. In most cases there are good reasons not to accept this practice.
Employment law has a long tradition – the most central reason for many changes was and is the protection of dependent employees. A distinction is made between individual labour law (Individualarbeitsrecht) - in this case, the relationship between the individual employer and employee - and collective labour law (Kollektivarbeitsrecht) - in this case, the legal relationship between the employer and the representatives of the employees or the respective associations.
International law is multifaceted and multi-layered – it concerns not only the question of which country you can or must enforce your rights, but also according to which legal system, according to which material law the relationship is to be judged at all. Clarifying these questions at an early stage is essential for the successful handling of a legal matter.
As an internationally oriented law firm, we look after many clients in cases with an international dimension.
Lawyer Hans-Oluf Meyer
Hans-Oluf Meyer (1969) is both Danish and German lawyer. He provides advice predominantly in German/Danish legal matters in areas of international contract law, international private law and litigation. In Danish law he basically focuses on contract law, company/commercial law and the tort law.
