€1.1 million for Nyhedsavisen employees

More than half a year after the bankruptcy of Danish free daily Nyhedsavisen in September 2008, former employees are being compensated with a total of more than Dkr 8 million (€1.1 million).

Journalism union journalistforbundet reported that 56 former staff members are compensated by the Employees’ Guarantee Fund; 17 employees were paid the maximum of €15,000. The union is still trying to get compensation for freelancers as well.
