Bill on changes to the Stock Option Act passed

6 December 2018

A majority in the Danish Parliament has just passed the bill on the amendment of the Stock Option Act proposed by the Ministry of Employment.

The new law introduces substantial changes and aims to increase the freedom of contract within stock option plans by removing the current distinction between “good leavers” and “bad leavers”. The bill was passed in unchanged form and only with a few clarifications in the explanatory notes. Therefore, there are still some situations or circumstances where the law is unclear. We have previously written about the bill here.

The law will enter into force on 1 January 2019.
