Labour market services

In view of the changes in the labour market and economy, it is important to prevent unemployment, in addition to the measures being offered to the unemployed. To this end, the state is paying increasing attention to working people who need support in preserving their job or preparing for a new job, as well as employers who are looking to develop the skills of their employees. The aim is, with the support of refresher training and retraining, to help people move on to higher value-added jobs.

Labour market services are provided:

  • for the jobless and jobseekers, to help find employment and encourage professional development;
  • to the employee, to encourage professional development;
  • to obtain suitable labour for the employer.

The provision of labour market services is financed from a number of different sources, the main ones being unemployment insurance funds, state budget and European Social Fund grants.

The Labour Market Services and Benefits Act , and the employment programme approved on the basis thereof, provide for the rights of different target groups (unemployed, jobseekers, employees, employers, etc.) to receive labour market services, such as work mediation, career counselling, career information mediation, support for job readiness, labour market training, practical training, consultancy services, wage subsidy, support for obtaining qualifications, individual employment, services for disabled persons provided according to the needs of a particular person and/or employer, etc. These services will be complemented by services provided from European Social Fund (ESF) programmes and open application round projects, such as support for participation in level education, services for people with reduced ability to work, retired and older middle-aged people, young people, international protection recipients, etc.
