Safety and security in working life

Especially during unexpected changes, it's important to have your bases covered. As a member of YTK Association, you have access to the new Lakikaveri legal service for work-related legal issues. In addition, you get free coaching and valuable membership benefits for your job search and career. This way, you can prepare against the twists and turns of working life without needing to worry!

“When I finally got myself collected, I asked what exactly was my dismissal based on?”

In what kinds of situations have our members received help from the Lakikaveri legal service? For example, Saara was unexpectedly dismissed without a clear reason or warning. Now, a lawyer from the Lakikaveri service helps Saara fight for her rights. Read Saara’s story!  

Lakikaveri is at your assistance in matters related to unpaid wages, dismissals, employment contracts, terms of employment, workplace harassment, fixed-term contracts, holidays and any other work-related things on your mind.
