- is not a trial period for the job
- does not count towards annual holidays or pensions.
In most cases, participants in work try-outs can receive unemployment benefits and expense allowance.
Arranging a work try-out can help you as an employer
- You will get to know the person during the try-out, giving you the chance to later hire someone who already knows how things in the company work.

Post an online job ad for work try-outs
If you want to offer an opportunity for a work try-out in your organisation, you can post an advertisement through Enterprise and Employer E-Services. If you cannot use the e-services, you can contact the TE Office about the try-out.
Once the TE Office has approved your offer for a work try-out, jobseekers can see suitable offers for work try-outs on E-Services and contact the employer directly.
Alternatively, you can also notify the municipality that is part of the local government pilot on employment about a work try-out opportunity.
