Free employee rights advisory service for immigrant employees

All immigrants and foreign employees working in Finland may contact the new advisory service in their employment-related questions free of charge. The advisory service is provided by The Central Organisation of Finnish Trade Unions (SAK)

By providing an employment advisory service SAK is seeking to help foreigners and immigrant employees enter the world of work and integrate into society in Finland.

The employee rights advisory service for immigrants answers questions in Finnish and English:

  • by telephone 0800 414 004 (Mon-Thu from 09.00 to 11.00 and from 12.00 to 15.00)
  • by email workinfinland@sak.fi

The SAK advisory service is part of the joint At Work in Finland project, which seeks to develop advisory services promoting immigrant integration and employment.

The European Social Fund ESF has agreed to subsidise the advisory service until the end of August 2018. Other financiers include Service Union United PAM and the Trade Union for the Public and Welfare Sectors JHL.
