NEW TRAINING - FALL 2020
HAE JONOTUSPAIKALLE UUTEEN KOULUTUKSEEN SYKSYLLE 2020
The Finnish parliament has extended entrepreneurs’ temporary right to labour market subsidy until the end of the year. The temporary, more flexible conditions for lay-offs and redundancy negotiations will also apply until the end of the year. If an entrepreneur continues to need unemployment support, the TE Office will contact him or her directly.
The “exempt amount” for adjusted unemployment benefit has been temporarily raised from the current €300 to €500 per month, or from €279 to €465 per four calendar weeks. The “exempt amount” means how much money an unemployed person can earn without it affecting their unemployment benefit. More full-time employees are now eligible for the mobility allowance than before, helping employers who face labour shortages.
The applications for the subsidy that restaurants have been waiting for open today. Business owners can use a service on the website of the KEHA Centre, the development and administration centre of the ELY Centres and TE services, to check whether they will receive group payment or not.
