15 Employment Insurance as financial support mechanism for Training
☞ Employment Insurance (funding project) was introduced in 1995 by the Ministry of Employment and Labor as a social safety net. The EI is a comprehensive labor market policy and a social security system including employment security and vocational skills development programs - aimed at preventing unemployment and promoting employment as well as a traditional unemployment insurance program providing unemployment benefits.

16 Levy-Grant System Every company is obligated to pay the imposed training fees of the employees, and the government pay back when the training implemented. Employer, employees and the unemployed are free to provide or receive vocational training, and the EIS Fund grants subsidies for the training implemented. More favorable for large enterprises; The return rates is flexible for the SMEs which are vulnerable in terms of conditions to implement training.

17 Employment Insurance for all workers
Support for skills development of the employers, employed, job seeker, self-employed Coverage: All Workplaces - Since October 1998, all workplaces with one or more employee have been subject to the Employment Insurance System. Companies implement training for the employees autonomously, government induces and encourages the companies to develop human resources needed by supporting financially.
