Aim, structure and tasks of the organization

    The Employment Fund brings security amid labour market changes by collecting unemployment insurance contributions used for funding earnings-related unemployment benefits and promoting employees' competence development through adult education benefits. The Employment Fund is an important part of the Finnish social security system, and all employers and 16-64-year-old employees in Finland are its customers. The Employment Fund is an organisation established by law and managed by the labour market parties. The Employment Fund was launched on 1 January 2019 through the merger of TVR and the Education Fund. The Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority is the Employment Fund's regulator. The Employment Fund has a staff of some 150. The Fund provides advice to its customers in matters concerning unemployment insurance contributions and adult education benefits, and contributes to changes to legislation in its sector.
