Length of the mobility allowance period
The length of your mobility allowance period depends on the length of your employment contract.
Mobility allowances are paid for a maximum of five days a week as follows:
- At least two months of employment: mobility allowance for 30 days, i.e. payments for 22–24 days
- At least three months of employment: mobility allowance for 45 days, i.e. payments for 33–35 days
- At least four months of employment: mobility allowance for 60 days, i.e. payments for 44–45 days
You start a job on 1 August 2022 and work until 14 October 2022, i.e. for approximately 2.5 months. Your mobility allowance period is therefore 30 days, from 1 August to 30 August. Mobility allowances are paid for a maximum of five days a week, so you are entitled to mobility allowance payments for 22 days.
If you work part-time, you will only be paid an allowance for the days that you actually work, up to a maximum of five days a week.
The length of the mobility allowance period is the same regardless of whether you work full-time or part-time, and the allowance period cannot be extended even if your allowance payments are temporarily suspended.
The length of the mobility allowance period is calculated based on the information in your first employment contract. The allowance period cannot be extended based on any subsequent contracts.
At the most, your mobility allowance can be paid up to the end of your employment relationship or work-related training course.
If you resign from the job on which your mobility allowance is based or lose your job due to your own actions within the first two months of your contract, you will not be entitled to a mobility allowance. In such circumstances, we will have to recover the mobility allowance payments made since the start of your employment.
