For you to have the best possible conditions, it is important that all employees in Sweden observe the rules of labour law. In Sweden it is, among others, the trade unions that make sure that this happens. They ensure that an employer who has an agreement with the trade union cannot pay a lower wage than that which is in the agreement. It is therefore common for representatives from the trade union to pay a visit to your workplace and help you if you feel that you have a problem.

When you are a member of Kommunal, you can obtain help in ensuring that:

  • Your employer gives you a written certificate of employment containing the necessary details
  • The employer has the necessary personal protective equipment
  • Your employer observes the law on working hours and that you can have your free time
  • Your employer pays your wages at the right time and informs you of other wage benefits
  • Your receive paid holiday or the holiday pay that the employer must give you per hour if you choose not to take a holiday
  • That you receive protection or compensation if you are injured
  • That in certain instances you receive sick pay if you fall ill.
