Finland - Unions oppose new cuts in unemployment benefits - October 31, 2016

The union for the public and welfare sector JHL is concerned about the Government’s plans to continually cut earnings-related unemployment benefits. By government’s decision the maximum length of earnings-related unemployment benefit will already be cut by 100 days, from 500 days to 400 days in the beginning of 2017. For those who have been active in working life less than three years the number of days will be cut from 400 to 300. Currently the government is planning further cuts in unemployment benefits in a new pact for employment. JHL has expressed its opposition to this plan.
