Midweek holidays

Unemployment benefit can be paid during midweek holidays, if you are wholly unemployed and, on compliance with certain conditions, when you are temporarily laid off. If you are wholly unemployed, fill in unemployed in the daily account of the application.

Whether you receive daily allowance during temporary lay-off period depends on the applied collective agreement. If the day is a midweek holiday in the collective agreement, fill in midweek holiday to the application. In other cases, choose unemployed. The collective agreement also determines whether the employer is obligated to pay salary during midweek holidays. You can find more information on compensations for midweek holidays from the Industrial Union’s website.
