Finnish Action Plan in facilitating the employment process of foreign labour

Finnish Action Plan in facilitating the employment process of foreign labour has been disseminated to relevant government offices in Finland on the 27th of November, 2012

 

The Finnish Action Plan in facilitating the employment process of foreign labour has been drafted in order to disseminate information to relevant government offices in the national language. A summary of the Finnish Action Plan has been published in English in “Facilitating the employment process of foreign labour – Action Plans” document which includes Action Plans for four Egoprise-project countries, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Germany. This Finnish Action Plan document includes additional recommendations.

The Finnish Action Plan document "Ulkomaisen työvoiman rekrytoinnin viranomaisasioinnin ideaalimalli- Ideaalimallin esittely ja vertailu nykyisiin käytäntöihin Suomessa” consists of two parts:

The first part describes the ideal process for the employment process of foreign labour which has been elaborated in Egoprise-project and includes process models and descriptions for both EU and non-EU citizens’ employment processes.

The second part presents a comparison of the current process in relation to the ideal process with recommendations for future development.  The recommendations include concrete development recommendations with suggestions for amendments to the existing laws and regulations that hinder the development of the ideal process as described in the document. Recommendations are based on a legal study that was conducted for the Egoprise-project in June 2012. The legal study has been sent to the government offices as an attachment to the Action Plan document.

The Finnish Action Plan document has been forwarded to all important government offices that take part in the employment process of foreign labour:  Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Employment and the Economy, National Police, Immigration Office, Population Register Centre and Central development office of the local register offices. The more detailed dissemination list can be found in the cover letter.
