Fixed-Term Contracts

Fixed-term contracts are permitted in Sweden but may not exceed two years. They may be used for general fixed-term projects, seasonal work, temporary positions, or those over the age of 67.

Probationary Periods

Probationary periods are permitted but not required in Sweden. When used, they may not exceed 6 months. During the probationary period the employment relationship can be terminated with two weeks' notice. If the contract is not terminated within that period, the employment will become permanent.


Workers recognize 13 paid public holidays.

Sick Leave

Workers are not entitled to pay on the first day of injury or illness. For the following 14 days, employers must pay 80% of their  salary. After that, the Swedish Social Insurance Agency provides sick benefits. In some cases, a portion of the sick pay issued to the Worker may be recovered.

Overtime cannot exceed 50 hours per month. The premium rate for overtime work is 150% of the Worker's hourly rate for each hour worked over 40 in a workweek. Hours worked after 8:00pm or on weekends are compensated at a rate equal to the Worker's monthly rate divided by 72 for each additional hour worked.
