Liability component estimate

  • Public service

You can use the calculator to get an employee-specific estimate of the amount and percentage of an employer’s liability component.

An employer may be obliged to pay the liability component if they have dismissed or laid off an elderly employee and the employee has been unemployed or laid off for a long period. Liability component payments are used to finance unemployment benefit expenses incurred by terminations and layoffs. The liability component applies to employers whose payroll, which serves as the basis for the calculation of the unemployment insurance contribution, exceeds the annually specified minimum level.
