Unemployment insurance: towards an extension of the current rules?

Invited by Sud Radio this Tuesday, July 12, the Minister of Labour, Olivier Dussopt, announced that the current unemployment insurance rules were to be extended.

These rules are in effect until October 31 and we are working to see how to extend them “, did he declare. This extension should allow the Government to have more time to assess the effects of the latest unemployment insurance reform. The latter being applicable, for almost all of its provisions, since the end of 2021.

You have to do an assessment first. Let’s take a look at the usefulness of these new rules. They facilitate recruitment, they facilitate employment incentives, but we only have a few months of hindsight “said the minister. As a reminder, the entry into application of this reform, which began in 2019, had been suspended and postponed several times for its other components due to the health crisis. It will not end until next September with the entry into force of the “bonus-malus” system intended to fight against the abusive use of short contracts.

For the time being, no indication concerning the new term has been given by the minister, however, according to union sources, this extension could last until the end of 2023.
