Additional Information

Sodexo Airport Services is planning to lay off between 75% and 100% of its employees at airport Copenhagen, which implies losses of 135 to 179 positions. The company may have to close completely due to the effects of the Corona-crisis. The company received public aid during the first months of the pandemic, but this funding is no longer available. Sodexo is now negotiating with the trade union regarding the the lay-offs and to help former employees with job search and application processes. 

The redundancies will begin in July 2020.
