Public employment services' position and priorities

The audit indicated that in the labour administration's activities as well as steering on the part of the Ministry of Labour, public employment services have been subordinate to other tasks that have been assigned to the administrative sector. In the Ministry of Labour's steering, the labour administration's activities have not been consistent with the state's general economic policy lines. The audit evaluated whether the activities of public employment services and the labour administration as the implementing body have supported the economic goals of employment management.
