Norwegian term or phrase: legges til grunn.
Part of an employment agreement."Sykelønnsordningen og dens regelverk legges til grunn." I think it means "forms the basis" but would like other opinions.

Without more context I can't be sure, but I usually insert additional wording in order to get an idiomatic equivalent in English. Something like "serves as the legislative basis for this Agreement," perhaps.
