Sweden - Agreement on employment model for labour market entrants - March 31, 2018

The government and representatives of employees and employers have agreed on a new system of ‘entry agreements’ that is based on an earlier deal between the social partners. The deal was signed on 5 March 2018. The talks led to the conclusion of a tripartite agreement that will introduce a new employment model for labour market entrants. The ‘entry agreement’ (‘etableringsjobb’) aims to help newly arrived immigrants and long-term unemployed to become established in the labour market, and to facilitate future skills provision for employers. In the letter of intent of the negotiation partners, it is said that the basic premise is that entry agreements should make it possible for newly arrived immigrants and long -term unemployed people to get a job with an employer covered by a collective agreement on entry agreements.
