What does short-term work and compulsory leave mean?

Short-term work (korttidsarbete) means that your working hours are lowered, but the Swedish state pays part of your salary. You are in this case not entitled to benefits from a-kassan for your lost working hours.

Compulsory leave (permittering) means that your employer has reduced your working hours but you have not been laid off. You are not entitled to benefits from a-kassan as long as you are still employed. This also applies if your salary is lowered or if you do not receive salary at all.
