Labour legislation

The conditions of employment are determined at Aalto University on the basis of both labour legislation and the General collective agreement for universities.  

Collective agreement

The collective agreement includes regulations on matters such as the salary payment system, working hours, annual holiday, and sickness pay.

The parties to the agreement are the Association of Finnish Independent Education Employers (AFIEE) representing the employers' side, as well as representatives of personnel - the Negotiation Organisation for Public Sector Professionals JUKO, the Trade Union for the Public and Welfare Sectors JHL and Trade Union Pro. 

The collective agreement is in force from 1 February 2018 to 31 January 2020.

Labour legislation

Several different laws are in force concerning labour issues, which the employer must keep available for viewing at the work place to secure the rights and safety of employees. Here is a list of some of some of the key regulations affecting labour issues. Finnish legislation can be found on the Internet in Finlex, the online database of up-to-date legislative and other judicial information of Finland. On the Ajantasainen lainsäädäntö page it is possible to conduct searches in the Finlex database either on the basis of the name, or using a free text search.
