Coronavirus / work at home: how will partial unemployment work


As the end-of-month declarations approached on the Cesu and Pajemploi platforms, the Urssaf clarified on Friday the conditions for setting up the partial activity for individual employers. Objective: prevent precarious employees from a sharp drop in remuneration.

Compliance with containment measures has forced the public authorities to deploy partial unemployment for home employment.

The coronavirus crisis has placed the home employment sector in an unprecedented situation. Compliance with containment measures has forced the public authorities to deploy partial unemployment for some 1 million employees who, from childcare to household help at home, work for a private individual. At the request of either the employee or the employer, the service could be suspended during this period.

“Our objective is to ensure that these precarious employees are not impacted by a reduction in remuneration”, explains, Adrien Gauthier, customer communication manager at Acoss, the national Urssaf fund, acknowledging that it is “An unprecedented system of exceptional compensation”.
