Partial unemployment : no change on the 1st July for companies and employees

there will be no reduction of the compensation of partial unemployment for employees, or a decrease of its support for business on July 1, said Monday the ministry of Labour, in response to a variety of information and press statements from the government. "The information according to which compensation of employees in part-time workers would increase to 60% of the gross (up from 70% today, editor's NOTE) July 1, is inaccurate. There will be no change in compensation for employees part of the 1 July", said the ministry in a message to the press.

"No change for firms at the 1 July", said the entourage of Muriel Pénicaud, stating that "the consultation with the social partners continues". Since 1 June, the employers already have to support 15% of the cost of partial unemployment.

"It's going to go down a little bit,"

The minister of public Accounts, Gérald Darmanin, has, him, hinted Monday a new reduction of support by the State from 1 July. "We will go down a little bit," the part-time unemployment, he said on BFMTV and RMC, to enter the gross salary to be "60% instead of 70% currently. According to him, the employees "will certainly not see the difference" since it "belongs to heads of enterprises to compensate for the 10% or 15% that the State will no longer".

Friday, it is the secretary of State for the Economy, Agnès Pannier-Runacher, which had evoked a decrease of the support of partial unemployment on the 1st July for companies and lower compensation for employees, before retracting on the first point.
