You know that your work contract ends soon, before the end of the activity partial ? In this case, we should think of the register with the Pôle emploi, as a job seeker if this is not yet the case.

What are the conditions to receive the allowance for unemployment ? What is the calculation ?

You have lost your job and you want to know if you meet the conditions, don't panic. Have already in mind that the agents of the public service and the private sector can benefit from the AER under the same conditions. But what are these last ? You summed up the current rules :

"You must be involuntarily deprived of employment ," says one well on the site service-public.fr. This means that the end of your contract of employment may be the result only of the following grounds : termination for an economic reasons or personal , revocation , the non-renewal of a fixed term contract (CSD) or a resignation considered legitimate (read more below) . You need to justify a minimum duration of work , and therefore have contributed sufficiently. One speaks of the period of membership. Specifically, if you have less than 53 years old at the present time, you have to justify six months of work "(130 days or 910 hours) in the last 24 months to the end date of your contract of employment". This duration was lengthened to 27 months in the context of the crisis. Be absolutely registered with the employment within 12 months of the end of your work contract , or carry out any training included in your personalised plan for accessing employment (PPAE). Finally, it is necessary to perform acts "positive and repeated" to find a job. You must not have reached the legal age of retirement fixed at 62 years of age or meet the conditions of the full rate.

Can you get unemployment after resignation ?

Yes, provided that the reason for your resignation is legitimate . By legitimate, we mean in particular the fact to resign in order to follow the person with which it is in torque. This pattern is valid both for the officials and employees of the private sector . On the dedicated website of service-public.fr there is a list, you can find it in full, here. Here are some examples :

You have been forced to relocate : to track your spouse, or your parents, after a marriage or a civil partnership, because you are a victim of domestic violence or because your disabled child is welcomed into a structure that is far from your home. You have resigned a contract helped or CDDI (fixed-term contract of inclusion, for young people under the age of 26 in great difficulty, for example, or the bénéficiaires of minimum wage) to do skill training.

You have a project of professional retraining or creation of business.

dismissal for gross misconduct may give rise to the payment of an unemployment allowance ?

Yes, the dismissal for negligence, whether simple, serious or heavy, is considered as a ground for disciplinary and staff. It integrates in the framework of the unemployment insurance. As a reminder, we denote by serious fault a fault in which the facts are attributable to the employee, and which does not allow its retention. This is the case of abandonment of position for example, kai or insubordination and the drunk during working hours, for example.

I have made a contractual termination with my employer, can I receive unemployment ?

Yes, when you have agreed to a contractual termination with your employer, you may be entitled to receive the allowance for the return to employment paid by Pôle emploi.

How the unemployment benefit is calculated ?

To determine the amount of the allowance back into employment, centre for employment takes into account your previous salary. The amount of AER gross per day is composed of :

a fixed share of 12 euro a variable portion equivalent to 40.4% of the daily wage of reference . The latter is equal to the annual salary of reference divided by the number of days worked over the last twelve months, which precede the last day worked. "The number of days worked maximum retained on the reference period is 261 days," one can read on the website as a public service. "The calculation of the SJR is obtained in the following manner : SJR = reference salary / (number of days worked x 1.4)".

are You lost ? Don't panic. The site service public provides an example of an asset that has worked from January 1 to December 31, 2019. In this capacity, he has worked 261 days. If on this period, he has won 25 000 euros gross, then it implies the following formula to determine your daily salary of reference : 25 000 / (261 x 1.4) = 68,42€. In fact, the AER must be between 57% and 75% of the daily wage of reference . " The net amount of the AER may not be less than 29,26 € ", we can read on the site service-public.

Note that you have the possibility to estimate the amount of your compensation unemployment using the simulator available on the site of the job center, here. Note : this tool does not yet reflect the reform of unemployment insurance which comes into force on 1 April. As the reprécise well Pôle emploi on the same page, it is better to already be registered and carry an estimate in his personal space. "The result you will get will take into account your situation", it was argued.

Keep in mind that the allocation of a return to employment is declining for the very high income. If the ARE "daily upper to a previous salary gross monthly average of € 4,500, a discount of 30 % is applied from the 7th month of payment (with a floor set at 2 261 euros net per month)", says one.

What is the duration of compensation ?

It depends on the duration of the job that you have exercised over the last 24 months prior to your loss of employment and your age. Here are the rules that will apply from 1 November 2019, the employees of the private sector as agents of the public service :

You have less than 53 years old and have exercised of 6 months in the last 24 months : you may not qualify for compensation. You have less than 53 years old and have worked for more than 6 months during the last 24 months : compensation unemployment between 182 and 730 calendar days (includes all calendar days, including holidays). You have between 53 and 54 years of age, you have worked less than 6 months in the last 36 months : no compensation. You have between 53 and 54 years of age, you have worked more than 6 months over the last 36 months : the duration of your unemployment allowance is between 182 and 913 calendar days . You are over 55 years of age or more and have worked less than 6 months in the last 36 months : no unemployment . You are 55 years or older, have worked for more than 6 months : you can recover compensation for a period of between 182 and 1,095 days calendar .

as a reminder, the people who have reached the retirement age, in theory, can no longer benefit from the allocation of a return to employment. "If you are over 62 years of age, and you touch the ARE for at least 1 year, the duration of payment can be extended until you meet the conditions to receive a pension at the full rate," says public service on its website, on condition of having contributed 12 years to the unemployment insurance, or failing that, to justify 100 quarters of contributions to retirement.
