Frequently asked questions

What does the social security coordination mean?

Each country is free to decide who is insured under its laws, what rights arise from insurance and under what conditions. The European Union defines common rules, under which the social rights of workers are protected (in EU and EEA Member States, and in Switzerland). To that end, the following principles are upheld: the application of the laws of one country, equal treatment (non-discrimination), the consideration of previous periods of insurance and the transferability of rights (i.e. the exportability of a cash benefit) and the calculation of benefits.


 

What are job fairs and how do I register?

EU Member States organise various recruitment events (job fairs, job days...) where you as an employer come into direct contact with job seekers. If you would like to attend a job fair, contact your nearest EURES advisor, who will provide you information about the fair or visit The European Job Days web-site where you can participate free of charge on the online job fairs. The costs of visits to onsite fairs abroad are borne by the employer/job seeker. A EURES advisor can represent you at a fair (online or onsite) by prior agreement. A list of job fairs and various EURES events can be found on the European Job Mobility Portal.

How does the recognition and assessment of education proceed when employing workers from other EU/EEA Member States and Switzerland?

When employing a foreign worker, be aware of your country's conditions for recognising the qualifications of the worker you intend to employ.

You may contact the network of ENIC/ NARIC (European Network of Information Centres) / (National Academic Recognition Information Centres) regarding the recognition and assessment of qualifications received in another Member State.

What needs to be arranged after I arrive in Slovenia?

After you arrive in Slovenia, you must register your residence. You must obtain a personal identification number (EMŠO) and tax number, and open a transaction account. Citizens from EU or EEA Member States and Switzerland do not need a work permit to work in Slovenia. However, the process still differs for Croatian citizens as Slovenia has introduced a 2-year transition period (from 1st of July 2013 till 30th of June 2015)  ans also a 3-year transition period (from 1st of July 2015 till 30th of June 2018) for the employment and work of Croatian citizens in Slovenia. This means that the Croatian citizens need to obtain work permit. Registration for employment is carried out by your employer.
