Frequently Asked Questions
How soon can I get a temp?
After an introductory talk, we can normally give you an indication of the time frame. Depending on your preferences or requirements for experience, education and other special qualifications, the process from recruiting to engagement will normally take between 3 and 14 days.
What are the rules for foreign labor?
Under the Temporary Workers’ Act, temps, including foreign temps, are entitled to the same salary and conditions as permanent employees in similar job functions.
Do foreign temps speak Danish or English?
Several of our Eastern European temps speak English while some speak and / or understand Danish.
At BlueCollar, we have employees who can communicate in the native language of our temporary workers. We therefore make sure that the temp has understood the task and that any instructions are translated for the temp.
Am I required to help with accommodation, socialisation etc. in connection with foreign labour?
No, it is included as a fixed part of our contracts, so no extra costs will apply. We take care of all the practicalities and administrative work in connection with the recruitment and hiring, so you can focus on your day-to-day operations.
What is the limit on the amount of foreign labour I can employ?
There is no threshold for the use of foreign workers who are EU / EEA citizens. Therefore, there is no limit on the amount of our temporary staff you can employ.
How much do Romanian and Polish temps cost?
Under the Temporary Workers’ Act, temps, including foreign temps, are entitled to the same salary and conditions as permanent employees in similar job functions. We are a member of VikarBranchen (The Association of Temporary Work Agencies), which means that we comply with the Temporary Workers’ Act.
Why should I choose foreign temps?
The advantage of foreign temps is that they are primarily in the country to work. This means that they are focused and hard-working, they are easy to locate close to their workplace and their families are still in their home country, so they do not need to take any child’s first day of sickness leave. Moreover, our foreign temps also have a very low rate of sickness absence.
