On D&I’s Employment law breakfast we summarised and discussed the employers’ co-operation obligations. Here are our Key Insights:
#1 The employer may adapt the co-operation with its existing line organization, and fulfil its periodically applicable information and negotiation obligations in an annual cycle suitable for its activities.
#2 Changes in business operations require careful assessment in order to select the correct procedure.
#3 The review (in Finnish) of the Co-operation Act and its effectiveness has been published. The proposed amendments include lowering the limit of the scope of application to ten employees.
