On dismissal, including expiry of fixed-term employment, leading to unemployment, the university must pay unemployment benefits for the first and second day of unemployment to employees who are members of an unemployment fund at the time when the employment ends.

If this period includes days of absence, e.g. absence due to illness, holiday, public holidays that fall on a working day etc, the period will be extended and start earlier corresponding to the number of days of absence.
