Contractors need to ensure certain subcontractor requirements
July 3, 2018

Contractor’s obligations according to the Posted Worker Act (13 §) include ensuring that the subcontractor posting the employees in Finland has submitted a posted worker notification and has assigned a local representative for posted workers.

The contractors are recommended to include these requirements in their subcontracting agreements and ensure that they have the contact details of the representative. The representative should a person or company based in Finland, who the posted worker and the authorities can contact at all times during the posting. The representative shall be authorized to receive official documents on behalf of the subcontractor and to submit documents to the authorities and the courts.
