At the end of October TEK and the Union of Professional Engineers in Finland (IL) are organising events in Oulu regarding work life regulation. Read more on the events below and sign up! 

Welcome to Working life regulation course on October 28th! 

Time: Wednesday October 28th, 17.00-20.00
Place: the Union of Professional Engineers in Finland's office in Oulu, Hallituskatu 29 A

In this course you will learn the basics of labour law regulation in Finland.

For example, law regulates what could and should be in your employment contract, what is a trial period, what should you agree or not to agree on a non-competition agreement, how and on what grounds you can be temporarily laid-off and on what grounds you can and cannot be legally laid-off. You will also learn how working hours are regulated and how annual holiday is accrued.

We will learn through discussion and looking into things together in an interactive manner. The aim of this course is to ensure that you can navigate better in the legal jungle of Finnish working life, and you know your rights and how things should be done. You will also have a chance to meet other technology professionals in your area. 

While signing up for the event, please fill in your date of birth in the "Member number or date of birth" field and in the "Member organisation" field type TEK.
