You cannot join YTK if

  • you are an entrepreneur and you do paid work without being in an employment relationship or a public-service employment relationship.
    YTK can be joined only by wage earners. Commissioned work, self-employment or full-time entrepreneurship all prevent you from joining an unemployment fund for employees.
    You can be considered an entrepreneur also if you work at a company in which you have a fractional ownership or if you are a family member of the owner of the company you work at. In that case the assessment of your position as an entrepreneur is based on your personal share of ownership, your family’s share of ownership and whether you work in a leading position or not.

  • you work through a co-operative or a company that supplies workforce.
    If this co-operative or company only acts as the invoicing agent of the payments and does not as such practice the field, it cannot be seen as an employer under the employment contract legislation. If you work through a community that supplies work force and would like to join the unemployment fund, we recommend you contact our customer service so that we can verify your entitlement to join our unemployment fund.
