Health and Safety: You are encouraged to learn about the UiA system for HSE (Health, Safety and Environment; HMS in Norwegian), based on the Norwegian Working Environment Act (Arbeidsmiljøloven). You will also benefit from knowing about our system for Health and Safety Representatives (Verneombud), and who your closest representative is.
Unions: Union membership is encouraged by UiA as your employer. There are different unions to choose from, with various profiles in terms of the educational background of their members. The unions may assist their members in salary negotiations and issues related to working conditions. Examples of relevant unions at the faculty are NITO, Tekna and Forskerforbundet.
The Norwegian Holiday pay system can be a bit hard to understand for foreigners. Please contact your HR representative.
