Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to highlight the problems with statutory employment protection

available to workers when the employer imposes new qualification requirements in

connection with the reorganization. The purpose of this thesis is also that from an

intersectional perspective, examine the societal implications employers for new skill

requirements, in the knowledge society. The methods used to fulfill the purpose of the

essay is legal dogmatic. This has been applied in order to determine what is the law in

relation to the new qualification requirements at the reorganization of the business.

Furthermore has a sociological analysis applied to study the social implications

employers new qualification requirements may be. This analysis has assumed an

intersectional perspective of power. The conclusions that emerged through the essay

indicates the law of today primarily protects workers with formal qualifications as

university education or vocational training. Informal qualifications in terms of

experience and length of employment is not as highly valued. Furthermore, it has been

concluded that the strongest protection for workers in today's labor is itself being an

active part in providing themselves with the skills and knowledge their current job

seems to require. The impact of the new formal proficiency requirements may in society

from an intersectional perspective are that it shapes new classes in society by those who

lack the required qualifications tend to be marginalized from the labor market.

Hardened seems the workers suffer who established themselves in the labor market at a

time when traditional production professions and other less skilled occupations did not

require training. Employers new qualification requirements may thus negative effects on

many older workers but also other workers who lack the education and workers with

different ethnicity. Changed qualification requirements may thus be justification for

structural discrimination. Partly by qualification requirements in itself makes some

people do not achieve the requirements, but also to the legislation today formally fair

and neutral, which means that it does not take into account substantive injustice and

people's different conditions to acclimatize to the new labor market qualification
