Personal reasons for this service
All the above services exist to ensure a few key principles: Self-development, healthy work-life balance, fairness, career & networking opportunities, and financial safety.
Rarely are things for free and this service is not either. However, as a student, you can get all the services for free! If you wish to receive legal help only, this is 55 DKK a month. Should you go for the full package including unemployment insurance, then you will pay 505 DKK a month.
Although that seems like a steep price to pay, it eliminates any worries about financial stability and comes with all the previously mentioned benefits.
The last challenge is specifically geared towards expats, temporary workers, and other non-Danes. The website at the moment is completely in danish which might put you off. However, in many browsers, you can translate content to English which helps. Note that once you are a member, people will communicate in English if you prefer.
