HK Freelancer and Alka insurance

In Denmark, the Union of Commercial and Clerical Employees (HK/Denmark) in cooperation with the insurance company Alka has developed a special insurance scheme for freelancers (‘HK Freelancer’). It covers a company insurance and insurance of health and safety as well as accidents such as theft, fire and water damage. While being not exclusively targeting platform workers, it is also relevant for them due to the fact that the trade union makes this service available to self-employed without them being full member and its discounted price of DKK 2,700 (€362 as of 1 August 2018) instead of the usual DKK 4,500 (€603).
