Questions about student jobs
It makes no difference whether or not you are employed under Finansforbundet’s collective agreement.
We of course know our own collective agreement in detail, but in terms of legal advice and assistance, we can certainly help you even if you are employed on different terms.
Yes, our lawyers can read through your contract and contact you with coaching on whether you can sign it with confidence or whether you need to go back to your employer and negotiate the terms.
You can send the employment agreement to us at email@example.com, and then we will contact you when we have looked into your case.

There is a difference between whether you are employed according to a collective agreement or whether you are employed on individual terms where the employer and employee can more freely agree on the salary.

You can also get good advice and coaching on salary negotiations or read more about how to negotiate salary.
You are entitled to be paid as agreed. If this is not the case, you must initially notify your employer and provide a deadline of three days.
If you are still not paid your salary, you can contact us at 3266 1330 or email@example.com. One of our lawyers will then bring a case against your employer if there is a legal basis for it.
It depends on how you are employed. If you are employed according to a collective agreement, your salary and working hours are often agreed upon in advance. If you are employed outside of a collective agreement, it depends on what is agreed upon in your individual contract.

The first thing you need to do is remind your former employer.

How are you financially positioned in the event of parental leave during a student job, and how long do you have parental leave?
