HR News: Partial Activity

The reform of partial long-term activity will be implemented to compensate for the drop in activity in the next two years. One of the most damaging effects of the health crisis is unemployment. To limit job losses in the sectors most affected by the pandemic, a new partial unemployment scheme will come into effect on 1 July. It is less generous (60% of net pay) but is intended to last over time. In addition, a new clause guarantees employment throughout the duration of the contract suspension. The partial long-term activity will be renewable 4 times and the partial common law activity conducted over 3 months will be renewable 1 time.
