The purpose of the subsidy for arranging working conditions is to support you as the employer if you must procure work equipment or make alterations at the work place because of a disability or illness of a person you hired for a position or a person who already holds a position in your company, and the costs caused by the procurement or alterations are remarkable considering your organisation’s f ...

Do the following

Apply for the subsidy for arranging working conditions from the TE Office of your region. Fill in the Ministry of Employment and the Economy’s form TEM685 ‘Application for a subsidy for arranging working conditions’.

If you apply for a subsidy for an alternation or the procurement of work equipment or furniture, you must apply within a month from the performance of the alteration, or the procurement of the equipment or furniture.

The subsidy granted for assistance provided by another employee is paid monthly retrospectively on the basis of the realised time spent for providing assistance. The application for payment for the assistance provided by another employee must be delivered to the TE Office within two months from the end of the payment period.

To whom and on what terms

The subsidy for arranging working conditions is discretionary. The TE Office assesses the appropriateness of the subsidy. The assessment will take into account your employee’s situation and the financial position of your organisation. You must deliver to the TE Office sufficient information for the assessment of the need for the subsidy.

A prerequisite for granting the arrangement subsidy for procurements or alterations due to a disability or an illness of an employee is that you, as the employer, participate in covering the costs with a reasonable sum.

The maximum amount of subsidy for the procurement of work equipment or making alterations is 4,000 euros per person. The TE Office may grant the subsidy to be paid completely or partially in advance.

The TE Office may grant a subsidy for assistance provided by another employee for a maximum of 20 hours a month for a period of 18 months. The amount of the subsidy is 20 euros per hour, and it is paid on the basis of the realised time spent for providing assistance.
