What is the unemployment insurance?
The unemployment insurance and the activities of Kommunals a-kassa are governed by law.
The Parliament (Riksdagen) decides on the laws governing unemployment insurance and the activities of the unemployment insurance funds: the Unemployment Insurance Act (1997:238) and the Unemployment Insurance Funds Act (1997:239).
The Government issues ordinances and sets the limits for the daily cash benefit. The Swedish Unemployment Insurance Board supervises all parts of the unemployment insurance system in all Unemployment Insurance Funds. They also issue regulations to supplement the legislation regulating the insurance.
