You must notify LG (Lønmodtagernes Garantifond = Employees' Guarantee Fund) if you have not received your wages etc.
Your employer must have been declared bankrupt or have ceased operations and been declared insolvent before you can report a claim to LG.

When you report a claim to LG, you should be aware of our deadlines for reporting which are:
- no later than four months after your employer has been declared bankrupt
- no later than six months after your employer has ceased operations and been declared insolvent
Deadlines in the event of death
If your employer has died, there are two deadlines that must be observed:

- You must also report your claim for wages etc. to the lawyer of your deceased employer's estate no later than eight weeks after a notice has been published in the Danish Official Gazette.
