​​​​​​​What are the labour policy requirements and why must they be examined?

NOTE! Due to the coronavirus epidemic, an emergency lawwas passed regarding examining the labour policy requirements of people who are laid off.

Labour policy

Labour policy is an element of societal steering. The labour policy that is adopted includes ways of promoting employment, mobility of labour, and the development of skills and competences.

Labour policy also covers some of the restrictions used to determine who will be the target of the promotion means, and on what terms. They are the labour policy requirements. The results of these means are monitored to make sure that the adopted labour policy is working as planned.

In practice

In practice, it means that the TE Office will determine whether you are unemployed, is your job-seeking valid, have you caused your unemployment by yourself, and how studying or entrepreneurship will prevent you from seeking a full-time job.

If you have done something wrong in terms of labour policy, the TE Office can set a time limit before you will receive any benefits. We cannot pay you daily allowance during such a time period, even if you meet the other requirements.

Once the TE Office has reviewed your situation, it will issue a labour policy statement.

did you know?

When the TE Office is examining the labour policy factors, the officer may request a written report from you. Remember to provide the required information on time and with care. Failure to respond may result in you losing the daily allowance at least for a fixed period.
