What about the weekends, then?

Many of you have wondered what to enter in the application for weekends. If you have been laid off, it may feel strange to write that you were laid off or unemployed at the weekend. How should you fill it out?

There are many complicated aspects in unemployment security, and that’s why we need a day-by-day report. It is not uncommon that some people have working hours during the weekend.

Unnecessary bureaucracy is not needed, though. That’s why we only request for a day-by-day report, if you notify something for which we need a day-by-day report. So if you notify that you have been completely laid off during the entire application period, we will not ask for any more detailed information.

Based on your notification we will request a day-by-day report in certain situations. Then the application will allow you to make choices separately for each day, on the basis of which we can assess how your situation affects the earnings-related daily allowance.

The options in the application are: Employed, Laid off, Unemployed, In training, In TE services, Out of TE services, Sick, On holiday.

Under “Employed” you need to enter the hours you have worked, and for other options just click the box to choose it. Some of the options are not mutually exclusive, which means that you can choose more than one option for one day.

So what should I enter in the application for the weekend? That’s simple. If you were in employment, report your hours at work. If you were not in employment, choose “Laid off” or “Unemployed”.
