Conceived at a time of declining unemployment and recruitment difficulties, the reform of unemployment insurance, which the executive had agreed in July to suspend until January 1, 2021, notably provides for a tightening of compensation, accused not to be enough of an incentive to resume employment, and a sectoral “bonus-malus” to penalize companies that abuse short contracts.

” For us [cette réforme] is punitive “, notably affirmed François Hommeril (CFE-CGC) at the exit of the social summit, while Cyril Chabanier (CFTC) judged the postponement” completely unsuitable “, considering that” this reform must be canceled “. “This reform little by little, we are demonstrating that it is not at all adapted to the period”, added Laurent Berger (CFDT).
