General information on topic

Workers must be entered on the list as soon as they begin work on site. The end date for an employee must be entered on the list immediately when the employee finishes working on site or when the principal contractor knows the date when the employee will finish. 

The list of workers must show:

  • the worker’s first name and last name, date of birth and tax number,
  • start date and end date of work on site,
  • the worker’s employer’s name and business ID or corresponding foreign ID, and
  • the name and contact details of the representative in Finland referred to in section 8 of the Act on Posted Workers (447/2016).

Information on the representative’s qualification requirements and information required of him/her: Posted worker.

Persons making occasional deliveries to the construction site may be excluded from the list of workers. 

For the purposes of maintaining this list, all employers operating on a construction site that is a shared workplace must submit the necessary information on their employees to the principal contractor or developer. 

The principal contractor or developer must retain the list for six years after the completion of the construction.
