Unemployment issues in Europe

Similarly to Finland, unemployment issues are in many countries handled by separate unemployment funds. If you have been a member of an unemployment fund in another country or you will become a member of an unemployment fund in another country, this unemployment fund is your contact point.

In other situations, you can check whom to contact from the following list:
