Webinar: What are the rules regarding fixed-term employment?


On 1 October, new rules regulating fixed-term employment came into effect. For example, general fixed-term employment was replaced by a new form of employment, special fixed-term employment, which can be used for a maximum of 12 months. At the same time, new regulations regarding fixed-term employment were introduced in collective agreements in the state sector. On the other hand, some regulations regarding fixed-term employment remain unchanged.

This webinar will be conducted in English – the same seminar was held in Swedish and you can watch it here.

Date: Tuesday 25 October
Time: 12.15-13.00
Target audience: The webinar is open to all, but the focus will be on employment in the state sector.
