  Unemployment: a new tightening of the rules concerning compensation, what to expect?

Last July, Olivier Dussopt, the Minister of Labour, spoke of a need to review the reform of unemployment insurance. Among the various avenues mentioned, they spoke in particular compensation rules . According to recent decisions taken by the Executive, it seems that they want to tighten the rules on the period of compensation. And this, especially if the unemployment rate drops too much . Indeed, a draft decree, published on Monday, December 26, 2022, plans a change in unemployment insurance . However, it turns out that all the unions denounce the measure. We'll explaine everything here !

A need to tighten compensation rules

For many years, the President of the Republic has been reference to unemployment reform . In the month of July 2022, Olivier Dussopt, the Minister of Labour, spoke about the need for changes for unemployment insurance. He then confided the need “ necessary to go further regarding reform. Among his lines of work, he had highlighted an important principle. ' Our compensation rules must take into account the situation of the labor market, as does, for example, Canada. When things are going well, we tighten the rules and when things are going badly, we relax them. '. It would then seem that this tightening will take place from 2023.

According to the latest announcements, it would seem that the Executive wants to go further in reducing the compensation period. And this, in the event that the unemployment rate should drop below the 6% mark. This then means that if unemployment is above 9% , so high, so compensation rules remain unchanged . However, if it is between 9 and 6% , in this case, the rights of job seekers will decrease by 25% . According to the sayings, the Outremer is not affected by the reform . A requester d’emploi, which is unable to find childcare for its children, finds that this draft decree is one of the absurd aspects of the reform. ' With telework, it's hard to find families because people keep their children at home “, she explains. However, this encourages others to find a job quickly.

The unemployment rate: a decisive rate

The unemployment rate therefore becomes the decisive element in the rules of compensation . Indeed, the fluctuations of these rates will therefore become decisive in the tightening of the rules. If the unemployment rate is above 9%, the rules remain unchanged. However, if it is between 9% and 6%, the rights of jobseekers will be reduced by 25%. And in an even more extreme case where the unemployment rate would be below 6% , then the rights will drop by 40% . This tightening of the rules will therefore be established in the reform of unemployment insurance.

It turns out then that the maximum compensation period will be reduced from 24 to 18 months . If the situation improves, it would seem that this duration increases to 14 months . However, the unions are reluctant to this novelty. Indeed, according to them, this decision penalizes people who are already vulnerable. ' All this to make us believe that it is for the good of the unemployed. In reality, they will make drastic savings “, therefore entrusted the secretary general of the FNSAC-CGT union, Denis Gravouil.
