As a general rule, it is not necessary for any of the parties to issue a notification at the end of the employment.

Progress is measured annually and the figures are published in the report on the implementation of guidelines for the development and implementation of active employment policies.

A seasonal worker will be referred to “non-payment” status at the end of a season and will be recalled to the service next season.

Permanent seasonal workers may also be hired during the extended insurance period to participate in preparations for next season and special events that they cannot do during the season. For these activities, the employer may reward the person with a monthly amount that cannot be higher than the average monthly earnings during the previous year`s unemployment (compared to 2004,42 HRK in 2017). Seasonal workers receive financial assistance for the entire a-season period (no more than 6 months), whether or not they work for this period – it is also a social measure. During this period, they may work for the employer on the preparation of next season and events a season, for which they can additionally be allocated with the amount that is not greater than the average amount of earnings for the unemployed in the previous year.
