Employer’s Representative

 Are you in the process of sending your employees from abroad under contractual agreements with contractors or within your company group? Or perhaps you’re considering hiring labor or receiving employees abroad for specific projects?

Let us, Rantalainen, help you as Your Trusted foreign employer’s representative in Finland!

In compliance with Finnish law, posting companies bear certain obligations. These encompass the appointment of a reliable representative in Finland, timely notification to OSH authorities, and the maintenance of essential information throughout the posting period. Additionally, strict adherence to minimum wage, working hours, holidays, family leaves, and occupational safety regulations is essential (The Act on Posting Workers 447/2016).

Companies utilizing posted workers in Finland must designate a local representative for the posting company, accessible for communication. Moreover, those employing subcontracted or temporary workers must verify the contractor’s compliance with statutory duties. In the construction industry, adherence to the Act on the Contractor’s Obligations and Liability when Work is Contracted Out is obligatory for both main contractors and subcontractors (Act on the Contractor’s Obligations and Liability when Work in Contracted Out 1233/2006).

At Rantalainen, we specialize in streamlining this process. Our team diligently manages all legal requirements prescribed by the law for posted workers. This encompasses maintaining a direct line of communication with the posting company and Finnish authorities, overseeing compliance with residence permits, working rights, and adhering to the tenets of Finnish Labour Law.

Embark on a journey of seamless workforce deployment with Rantalainen.

Should you have any queries, our dedicated representatives are at your service.
