Employers

In order for us to know whether a person claiming benefit from us is actually entitled to that benefit, we must be able to determine whether they have worked for a sufficient amount of time prior to becoming unemployed. We do this by examining the work certificate issued by the employer ("arbetsgivarintyg") that you, as an employer, complete. This allows us to see whether your former employee meets our insurance conditions and also helps determine the size of any benefits to which they are entitled.

In accordance with Section 47 of the (1997:238) Act on Employment Insurance you, as an employer, are obliged to provide and sign a work certificate ("arbetsgivarintyg") upon request.

 

The Work Certificate From Your Employer (“Arbetsgivarintyg”) Form

The work certificate from your employer ("Arbetsgivarintyg") is a standardised form, as determined by the Swedish Unemployment Insurance Board, IAF ("Inspektionenförarbetslöshetsförsäkringen, IAF”). We will not accept any alternatives to this standard form. It is important that the work certificate (“arbetsgivarintyg”) is both completed in its entirety and signed, if we are to be able to approve it. If any information is missing, you may have to complete and submit a new form.

You can download the form from the Forms section of this website. You can also find it at the bottom of the page, in the Toolbox section.

 

The Work Certificate From Your Employer, Supplementary Information Form ("Komplettering till arbetsgivarintyg")

Use this form to tell us about any benefits that were not declared in the work certificate from your employer ("Arbetsgivarintyg"). This could include sick pay, the premium paid for working unsociable hours ("OB-ersättning") and commission payments (payments based upon the achievement of set targets).

It is important that the form is signed, if we are to be able to approve it. If any information is missing, you may have to complete and submit a new form.

You can download the form from the Forms section of this website. You can also find it at the bottom of the page, in the Toolbox section.

Proof of Employment ("Anställningsbevis")

Sometimes, we will request a proof of employment ("anställningsbevis"), when we need information regarding employers, workers, start and end dates of an employment contract, and the extent of the employment. It is important to note that a proof of employment("anställningsbevis") and a work certificate from your employer ("arbetsgivarintyg") are two different types of certificate.
