Problems in your summer job? Call the free summer job helpline!


The national labour confederations of Finland (SAK, Akava and STTK) reopened their summer job information service on Tuesday 2 May, providing free advice to seasonal employees for the 13th summer season. This regular advisory service has responded to thousands of queries from young workers, their parents and employers over the years.

Summer job advisor Sari-Anne Salminen stresses that employees should carefully study the terms and conditions of a job before signing the employment contract, and contact the summer job information service before starting work in cases of uncertainty.

“The service can provide advice on such aspects as pay, work shifts and trial periods. All enquiries are handled in confidence, and there is no reason to be shy about asking for help.”

Salminen urges summer workers to make sure that they get adequate orientation at work.

“The employer has a duty to provide guidance on such aspects as workplace conditions, operating machinery and equipment, and occupational health and safety. Proper orientation reduces work-related accidents, improves the quality of work and increases job satisfaction.”

The summer job information service will be open from Tuesday 2 May until Thursday 31 August. Check out the new advisory service website at www.kesaduunari.fi for important information on working as a summer employee. The website also allows visitors to send questions directly to the summer job advisor.

The telephone helpline will be open between 09.00 and 15.00 on Monday to Friday, advising callers in Finnish, Swedish and English. Anonymous calls are also accepted.

You can call the helpline on 0800 179 279. The summer job information service will also be visible on Facebook (www.facebook.com/kesaduunari) and Twitter (twitter.com/kesaduunari).
