Legislation which must be displayed by law

The law obligates you as an employer to keep several pieces of employment legislation on display in the workplace. The purpose is to ensure that employees can easily consult the essential employment legislation in one place if they wish to.

Direct your employees to Finlex.fi, the legislation website maintained by the Ministry of Jus-tice. If you wish, you can also order prints or digital versions of legislation for display. These services come at a charge.
