Obligations and responsibilities

As an employer, you are under certain obligations and responsibilities both during the hiring process and the employment relationship, and at the cessation of employment. We have put together a body of information, including that on services, making it available on the Job Market Finland; this information will help you to gain a clearer picture of the tangle of obligations.

  • Are your own two hands no longer enough for getting all the work done? Hiring a new employee, especially if it is your first, is a big step to take, and setting yourself up as an employer brings with it obligations relating to hiring. Some of these you must take care of before the employment relationship begins, some require action during the employment, and some relate to employment termination.
