Open access to applications

There is open public access to applications for a position or temporary employment relationship sent to an authority. Pursuant to Section 24 of the (Finnish) Act on the Openness of government Activities, confidentiality only applies to matters and documents specifically referred to as being confidential in that law. If an application contains confidential information, it will not be disclosed to third parties.

An applicant may express the wish that his or her details should not be made public knowledge. An authority must nevertheless provide those details if requested to. The media have frequently respected the wishes of applicants. Ultimately, however, the name of each person applying for a post may be made public.
