Beskrivelse

Any employee who has received notice of termination is entitled, during the period of notice, to reasonable leave of absence from the employment with full employment benefits in order to visit an employment agency or otherwise to seek work. There are no specific rules quantifying what a reasonable leave is.

Kommentarer

In practice, the time off is meant to be used for job interviews or activities/meeting with the Public Employment Service. The time off cannot be used for looking for other jobs or writing applications.

The ongoing reform process of the Employment protection act will not affect the right to take time off for job seeking activities.
