Estonia -Unemployment fee plan not well received -July 30, 2013

A plan to revise the unemployment insurance fee regulation has neither received the backup of the employers, nor the support of the trade unions. Trade unions and employers agree more with each other than with the state, said a member of the Employers' Confederation, commenting the proposal to let MPs decide the level of next year's unemployment insurance fee. The debate concerns the fate of hundreds of millions of euros because all salaried workers pay 2% of their gross wages to the unemployment insurance fund, plus 1% paid by employers.
