PES = Lithuanian Labour Exchange (LLE) is an executive agency under the Ministry of Social Security and Labour, i.e. directly subordinate and accountable to the Ministry. LLE is responsible for the provision of labour market services to jobseekers and employers and the implementation of active labour market policy measures. Registration at LLE is one of the prerequisites to be eligible for unemployment and social benefits. However, State Social Insurance Fund Board is responsible for the calculation and disbursement of these benefits.
Lithuanian Labour Exchange began its activities on 1 March, 1991. During over 20 years of work it has grown into an effective organization, which uses modern information technologies in providing services for jobseekers and employers. Currently the Lithuanian Labour Exchange and its 10 local labour exchange offices and branches in municipalities around Lithuania implement state employment guarantees on the national and local levels.
Our main office, with divisions and staff, is in Vilnius.
Lithuanian Labour Exchange is led by the Director.
