Is your fixed-term employment ending this summer?
Summer is a busy time on the labour market. Many people get employed for the season, but at the same time, many fixed-term employment contracts end at the beginning of summer.

Our campaign for a legislative amendment has gotten a great reception!

(Think the law needs changing?) campaign has gotten visibility on the media and high street all over Finland.
