With the autumn approaching, educational establishments will soon be filled by teachers and students. For both groups, unemployment security is topical right now. Many people working as teachers may have spent their summer on unemployment benefit which will end when they return to work. Some students in turn may start studies on unemployment benefit.
The main message of the government programme is that unemployment security will be developed and active labour policy measures will be increased, the goal being to shorten unemployment periods and prevent prolonged unemployment.
The Employment Contracts Act was amended at the end of last year. Specifications were made in sections concerning termination of employment. At the same time, it was decided to amend the Employment Security Act as well, because the Employment Security Act includes consequences for termination of employment without an acceptable reason.
