The Central Organisation of Finnish Trade Unions (SAK) has recently launched a new easy to use informative resource about working in Finland.
The comprehensive guide is available in 23 different languages and can be found on the Fair Play at Work Website.
Extensive information is available in Finnish, English, and Swedish, with more concise information available in Arabic, Burmese, Chinese, Dari, Estonian, Farsi, French, German, Kurdish (Sorani), Latvian, Nepali, Polish, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.
Fair Play at Work is divided into 5 sections, applying for a job, starting work, during employment, termination of employment, and information about the Finnish labour market.
SAK also offers a free employee rights hotline that advises young employees and international newcomers with questions or problems concerning their employment.
This service is open to all, and you do not need to be a member of a trade union to contact the employee rights hotline. You can reach the employee rights hotline by telephone, 0800414004, between 14-17 on Mondays, and between 9-11 and 12-15 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays or by e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org.
