The Central Organisation of Finnish Trade Unions (SAK) free advisory service for immigrant employees in Finland
The SAK advisory service is part of the joint At Work in Finland project, which seeks to develop advisory services promoting immigrant integration and employment
.

By providing an employment advisory service free of charge, SAK is seeking to help foreigners and immigrant employees enter the world of work and integrate into society in Finland.
Advisory service lawyer Anna-Liisa Häkkinen will respond to employment-related questions in Finnish and English by telephone and e-mail:

“All immigrants and foreign employees working in Finland may contact the advisory service, which will also advise employees who have not yet joined a union.”

Besides providing legal advice to individuals, the service lawyer will advise immigrant organisations on work-related issues and train trade unions and shop stewards in immigration questions.

The employee rights advisory service for immigrants will be open between Monday and Thursday from 09.00 to 11.00 and from 12.00 to 15.00. Telephone 0800 414 004 or e-mail workinfinland@sak.fi.

The employee rights advisory service for immigrants is on Facebook
