Working hours

The standard working week in Denmark is 37 hours split over 5 days. The primary working hours are Monday-Friday from 06:00 - 18:00. Lunch breaks are typically 30 minutes long. Lunch breaks are paid as regular working hours in the public sector, whereas most private employees pay for lunch breaks themselves. However, this varies from workplace to workplace.

Working hours are not regulated by law in the private sector, but rather, are determined by collective agreement or individual contracts.
