Upcoming lay-offs

This page contains monthly summaries of the upcoming lay-offs between 2015-2017. The monitoring figures are calculated on the basis of information collected by the Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centres) from Employment and Economic Development Offices. The data is based on the advance declaration of employers regarding potential lay-offs from the date of calculation for each month.

The monitoring of upcoming lay-offs ended at the end of 2017. As of May 2017, the Employment Contracts Act no longer obligates employers to notify the Employment and Economic Development Office of upcoming lay-offs.

Group lay-offs 2009-2014

You will also find summaries of the monitoring of group lay-offs for the period 2009–2014 on this page. The group lay-off method was discontinued at the end of June 2013. Since then, the job-seekers fully laid off or doing shortened working weeks have been entered in the employment service statistics of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment.
