Finland -New legislation applies -January 08, 2014

As of 1 January 2014 some changes in regard to unemployment benefits, parental leave and developing employees' professional skills are coming in effect that origin from the 2013 agreement between trade unions, employers and the government. It will be easier to get earnings-related unemployment benefit (calculated in terms of a daily allowance) than before. The waiting period to receive unemployment benefit is cut from seven to five days and unemployed can earn up to 300 euro a month without it affecting their dole. Parents of children under three years of age can now get a flexible care allowance if they combine part time work and childcare.
