If, due to your disability or decreased working ability, you are unable to perform duties using the employer’s equipment, we will lend you, free of charge, the assistive equipment necessary to carry out the work.
A case manager from the Unemployment Insurance Fund assesses the need to use such equipment in performing duties and identifies the most suitable equipment for you.
This equipment will be at your disposal until the end of the employment relationship, but initially for no longer than three years.
The contract for the use of assistive equipment may be extended if you still need to use the equipment to perform your duties. The assistive equipment you need (both at work and in your daily life) can be applied for from the Social Insurance Board.
To find out about the possibilities of removing barriers arising from a disability or state of health to carry out work, contact an appropriate Unemployment Insurance Fund office and make an appointment with a case manager. The contact details can be found here: Contact details of Unemployment Insurance Fund offices
