The YTK Association's membership services expanded significantly: Lawyer now helps you in person
What if there is a situation in your work life for which you should receive the view and support by a lawyer? For the members of the YTK Association, help is now here. At the beginning of the year, the YTK Association launched the 'Lakikaveri' service, which also includes a personal lawyer's service. The service included in the association's membership fee can be worth thousands of euros.
If you belong to the YTK Association meant for the members of the General Unemployment Fund YTK, you can start using the extensive legal support and protection provided by the Lakikaveri service at the beginning of 2022.
If you are not yet a member of the YTK Association, you can join here. The sooner you join, the earlier you will have access to all the available Lakikaveri services.
The Lakikaveri service includes legal telephone counselling, an extensive employment data bank and chatbot, as well as legal expenses insurance, which already have been included in the YTK Association membership. In addition to these, the whole has now been complemented by a personal lawyer's investigation service.
In practice, the new service means that a lawyer from our partner OpusLex's legal team can take on your employment matters – such as unpaid wages or ambiguities related to the termination of employment: they will find out whether the matter has been acted upon incorrectly and, depending on the situation, take the matter further.
The Lakikaveri service is included in the YTK Association's membership fee, which is 22 € this year. A lawyer can take on cases where a YTK association membership has been valid for at least six months. However, events older than those in 2021 are no longer being investigated.
Can I receive the Lakikaveri service? How can I get it?
As a member of the YTK Fund, you are not automatically a member of the YTK Association, but every member of the YTK Fund living in Finland and working in paid employment can join the YTK Association.
