PAWW is an additional social fee on the account of the employer (Eastmen) to ensure allowance when a person is sick or unemployed for the third year. We will deduct it, but we also add it back on your payslip further down. This is because it must be visible to authorities and the tax office. Eastmen then also pays the fee to the government.

Yes, that is possible. You can arrange this among yourselves.

Children under the age of 18 can be co-insured on your insurance. Did we arrange your insurance? Send us a request to register your child/children to [email protected]. Only after the registration they are insured. Did you arrange a private insurance? Then you need to contact them and ask them to register your child/children. Other family members need to get their own private insurance.
