What determines the rights of an employee or employer in Finland

This webinar is for anyone needing a deeper insight into Finnish labour market. Just this spring there have been some strikes going on about who determines the rights to agree or disagree on labour regulations and how it is done. This training is an excellent chance to get to know more.

In many countries basic rules of the labour market are determined by laws. In Finland labour laws are in many cases somewhat basic in nature and more specific rules come from collective agreements. These agreements can apply for one company or governmental organization only or they may apply for the whole sector and all its working places.

In most cases collective agreement is the source from which we get answers to questions like: how much vacation am I entitled for, what happens if I get sick, how much is my weekly working time and many more.

In this webinar you will learn who makes these collective agreements and how.

Trainer in this webinar is Daniel Valtakari, senior adviser at the trade union Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland (TEK)
