Job alternation compensation

Job alternation leave is based on voluntary agreement. The employee does not have a subjective right to take the leave. The employer and the employee agree on the terms of the leave with a written alternation contract.

A member employed full-time and his/her employer can mutually agree that the employee takes the fixed-term leave and the employer will commit to hire a person that is registered as an unemployed job seeker with the TE Office for at least the same period. The employer does not have to hire the unemployed person for the same job that the person taking the leave has done. The working hours of the hired employee has to correspond the working hours of the employee taking the leave.
