At the beginning of the employment relationship

When you are concluding a new employment relationship, you should pay attention to the terms and conditions under which you will provide your work performance for the employer. Remember to check the content of your employment contract and agree on your salary level right at the beginning of your employment relationship

Sign a good employment contract

The rights and obligations of the employee are determined on the basis of the legislation, possible collective agreements as well as what has been agreed in the employment contract. You should familiarise yourself with the terms and conditions of the employment contract carefully.

As a member, you can send your employment contract for comments to Loimu lawyers before signing it.

Trial period included in the employment contract

Employment contracts often include a trial period. The aim of the trial period is to offer time for consideration for both parties. During the trial period, it is possible to cancel the employment relationship without a period of notice.

Salary information for the start of the employment relationship

You should always find out the salary level when applying for a new job. We will help you ask for a salary that corresponds to your skills and experience before you sign the employment contract.

Palkkanosturi helps with your salary requirement

When you start in a new job, negotiate on an appropriate salary level. The salary level varies greatly depending on the employer sector, industry, company and tasks, which means that it is difficult to provide a general salary recommendation.

Therefore, we have created the Palkkanosturi tool which provides you with a salary requirement recommendation and useful statistics to support your salary negotiations. When signing the employment contract, you can utilise the salary information of Loimu’s members, which is collected with the annual labour market survey.

Palkkanosturi is in Finnish.

Do you need personal advice concerning the salary requirement?

It may be challenging to prepare the salary requirement, especially when switching from one industry or sector to another. We advise and help you in finding the appropriate salary level. On the basis of our own surveys and available statistics information, we can advise our members in salary issues and salary development in different work tasks.
