Due to the continuation of the coronavirus epidemic, the current rules of short-time working will be maintained until the end of May, announced the Minister of Labor, Elisabeth Borne, this Thursday at the microphone of CNews.

The partial unemployment benefit should have fallen to 72% of net salary on May 1, compared to 84% currently. Finally, part-time workers will continue to receive 84% of their net salary (70% of their gross salary) until the end of May.

“Do not withdraw these aids too quickly”

“Since the start of the crisis, we have had a watchword, it is to protect the French”, justified Élisabeth Borne, who specified that three million people should benefit from the partial activity in April, that is to say almost as much as in November, during the second confinement.

“We are really careful not to withdraw this aid too quickly,” explained the Minister of Labor. Set up since March 2020 to avoid massive layoffs, the partial activity mechanism cost 27 billion euros in 2020. On the other hand, employees on the minimum wage (CDD or CDI), on the part-time minimum wage and in training receive 100% of their salary, even on short-time working. A simulator is available on the website of the Ministry of Labor to calculate the amount of his compensation.
