Replaces document: Rule for applying intermittent employment at Umeå University, approved by the Vice-Chancellor on 16 November 2021, reg. no. FS 1.1-2373-21 and Rule for employment with hourly rate, approved by the Vice-Chancellor on 16 November 2021, reg. no. FS 1.1-2372-21.
Against the background of changes in the Employment Protection Act (1982:80) (known as LAS in Swedish), the Rule for applying intermittent employment at Umeå University and the Rule for employment with hourly rates have been reviewed and replaced with the Rule for intermittent employment with hourly wage.
The rule aims to ensure that the University fulfils the requirements of the Employment Protection Act and that the handling of intermittent employment with hourly wage at Umeå University is clear and consistent.
Intermittent employment with hourly wage refers to employment entered into with an individual to address the employer’s need to hire temporary staff for a period.
