Labour laws are quite evolved in Sweden and you are – as employee – protected by these laws. Make sure you know your rights and duties.
Sweden doesn’t have minimum wage. Wages are regulated by agreements – kollektivavtal – between employers and the trade unions.
There are three types of employment in Sweden: tillsvidareanställning, tidsbegränsad anställning and provanställning.
