Workers of the world
Immigrants to Finland have many different kinds of abilities, experiences and education. Immigrants have a lot to offer: as seasoned experts, motivated and rigorous workers or even as a helping pair of hands. In a multicultural environment, people have the chance to learn from each other and to develop in richer ways.
A good induction
A good induction solves most problems before they even have the chance to surface. Multicultural working environments open new doors and bring new perspectives to the table, and also support language development. A supportive working environment and a good induction motivate employees into long-term work agreements and encourage an independent work ethic, for the benefit of everyone.
Permission to work in Finland
When an immigrant resides permanently in Finland, they have an unlimited right to work, and the payment of their salary works the same way as anybody else’s. Almost all residence permits include the right to work in Finland. Refugees have a right to work. Refugees are allowed to work either 3 or 6 months after their arrival to Finland.
The right to work
The employer is expected to ascertain a foreigner’s right to work. The right to work must be checked before the creation of any work contract. You can check a person’s right to work by for example checking their residence permit card or their passport. Refugees’ right to work can also be ascertained by getting in touch with the Finnish Immigration Office, Migri. Their office hours are from Monday-Friday 9-12, or you can call them on 02 95 433 155.
