Additional Information

The rescue company Falck A/S will lay off 450 employees worldwide, 300 of them in Denmark, due to lack of services demand caused by the Corona-crisis. Furthermore, the company has lost some contracts, which has also weakened the business. Some 80 of the laid off employees were working at the Copenhagen airport.

Falck is having dialogues with the relevant trade unions.
