- Public sector agreements on terms of employment
- Information about terms of employment under section 6c of the Employment Protection Act (1982:80)
- Staff appraisals
- Remote work
- Agreement on terms of employment between the Swedish Agency for Government Employers and Seko
- Agreement on terms of employment between the Swedish Agency for Government Employers and OFR/S
- Agreement on terms of employment (Villkorsavtal-T) between the Swedish Agency for Government Employers and Saco
Much of the content of the various agreements is the same, but there are some differences.
Even if you are not a member of an employee organisation (union), the employer has an obligation to apply the same rules to all their employees.
In several cases, the agreements give the public authorities the possibility of signing local agreements which can be better adapted to the needs of the public authority.
Most local agreements at Lund University regulate working hours. However, the vast majority of employees are covered by the flexitime agreement or by the agreement on working hours for teaching staff.
You are welcome to enquire at your workplace about the agreements that cover your employment.
