Summary Until when ? Reduced activity Definition Pay Work and telework Training, and unemployment paid Holidays Retirement Employees home

[updated June 04, 2020 at 15h42] Shops open, restaurants and terraces filled... economic activity is gradually picking up in france since the 11th of may, the date chosen by the government to initiate the déconfinement. What about on the other hand the unemployment technique that has benefited by several hundreds of thousands of businesses ? As a reminder, it allows companies forced to reduce, or even stop their activity, to pay a portion of which is supported by the State. The device of part-time workers has not disappeared from one day to the next day. On the other hand, it has been adapted since the 1st of June, in order to encourage the recovery and limit the cost of this measure, already considerably to the coffers of the State. Here are the main points that have evolved, or not, since last Monday :

The rate of support for the State is increased from 100% to 85% : if you are employed, the amount of the allowance does not change. For the employer, on the other hand, it must now take charge of 15% of the compensation of its employees. Only certain areas , who can not resume completely resume activity and the list of which has yet to be specified by decree, will still be able to benefit from a full support of partial unemployment. Among these sectors, there should logically find the hotel, catering or culture. ceiling support, set at 4.5 times the Minimum wage remains unchanged

What about the companies in big trouble ? A specific device is intended to be implemented. We explain in our article dedicated to the part-time unemployment.

That became the part-time unemployment since the 1st of June ?

The part-time unemployment has not stopped abruptly last Monday. The compensation of employees will not decline in the coming weeks . On the other hand, it is well question to adapt the system in order to decrease the support of the State. How that will occur ? An ordinance was adopted by the Council of ministers allowing that activity partial can be requested for a job , and not only at the collective level.

We speak of part-time unemployment, individual . Attention, it is subject to a company agreement or a notice of the CSE . In practical terms, this means that a part of the workforce of the company will be able to resume the work, while the other will remain at the technical unemployment. Goal, allow companies to adapt their activity to the economic recovery.

Another aspect : the support rates of the State. Until now, the State took over 100% of the compensation of employees in partial unemployment, in the limit of 4.5 times the Minimum wage. This level must be lowered to 85%. This measure should be effective from June 1, 2020. The implementing decree has not yet been published.

Who can benefit from partial unemployment to 100% in June, and after ?

Some sectors continue to enjoy full support of the activity partial. But what, then, are the sectors concerned ? Only companies that are affected by a prohibition administrative, will benefit from "the time that it will take", had said Muriel Pénicaud as a first time. This statement referred to the decree of march 15, 2020 supplementing the order of 14 march 2020. It will list all of the institutions which must be closed, such as museums, restaurants and clubs, is found to be non-essential to the life of the Nation. You can find the complete list on the site

They will, therefore, receive compensation from their employer representative 84% of the net salary for the month of may, compared to 90% of their net salary in stopping the last month.

at the Meeting last Tuesday, Édouard Philippe has proposed a "re-opening very progressive" of primary and elementary schools as of may 11, "around the territory, and volunteer ", and with 15 students maximum per class. At the microphone of France Inter, the minister of Labour had indicated that parents who need to keep their children pourront continue to receive partial unemployment in the month of may. Since June 1, it is necessary to obtain a certificate from the school attesting that he or she cannot accommodate your child . The executive considers that in June, the concept of volunteering will be a priori more valid. In the absence of proof, you will not be able to receive partial unemployment . Thus, you will be forced to ask days of leave with or without pay to care for your children.

what is the device activity partial "specific" to the companies in reduced activity ?

The Senate voted on a complementary amendment during the consideration of the draft law on "urgent provisions to address the epidemic of Covid-19". Adopted may 28, 2020, it is anticipated that the companies have the possibility of introducing a regime of activity partial specific subject of the conclusion of a collective agreement or of the development of a plan of reduced activity for continued employment". Objective, allow a recovery to be extremely progressive in some sectors severely affected by the health crisis, such as aerospace and automotive.

"It seems to us necessary to put very quickly new devices for the preservation of the employment and skills which will allow these companies to adjust production capacity to the decline in function of the application, to limit the social and economic costs while preserving jobs," was thus explained to Muriel Pénicaud. In sum, companies faced with an activity that is reduced will decrease by agreement with the trade unions working time, moderate wage, provided that it maintains fully the job, with help from the State which will complement to make up a portion of the loss of purchasing power," said Muriel Pénicaud. There would therefore be a partial loss of income for the workers concerned by this reduced activity, the State is not committing itself to compensate for that part of the loss.

What about the terms of that specific device ? The decree has not been published for the time being. According to The Echoes, there are two scenarios on the table :

Is a negotiation with a company agreement with the trade unions: the implementation of a "plan of reduced activity for the maintenance of employment" by the management unilaterally.
