how the Senate will leave its mark on the law on unemployment insurance

Market modulation

The rapporteurs of the Senate Frédérique Puissat (LR) and Olivier Henno (centrist) wanted to register it clearly in relation to the principle of modulating unemployment insurance according to the state of the labor market, which the government intends to introduce by decree. the law.

It is up to the unemployment insurance agreement concluded between the social partners to determine the parameters. A consultation between the latter and the government on this graduation began on 17 October and is due to end on 21 November.

Repeated CDI refusals

The rapporteurs have also stipulated that a jobseeker who has refused three CDI proposals at the end of a CDD during the last 12 months cannot be eligible for unemployment insurance. They believe that the proposed wording “allows for clearly targeting an employee’s marked reluctance to engage in a permanent job”.

This measure will be debated in the semi-circle, where the left accuses the senatorial majority of “toughening up” the government’s text. Conversely, LR senators want to go further by reducing the number to a single rejected CDI.

Abandonment of position

Regarding the provision to equate “abandonment of position” with a resignation, the senators clarified the procedure. They believe, according to AFP, “it is not desirable that an employee who is dismissed after resigning is in a more favorable position with regard to unemployment insurance than an employee who resigns and who does not, not be compensated”.

What limit for the current rules?

It is especially on the first article of the text that the Senate majority marked its difference with the government. This article authorizes the government, by decree in the Council of State, to take the measures for the application of the unemployment insurance scheme until 31 December 2023. In committee, the senators reduced this limit to 31 August 2023.

“A letter of guidance”

An amendment repeals the provisions of the labor law, which since 2018 provide the procedure for negotiating an agreement on the basis of a “framework letter”, to return to a “letter of guidance” which “does not anticipate the conclusion”.

Bonus Malus

Another point that was addressed by the senators in the committee: the parameters of the bonus-malus, a device intended to limit short contracts. In particular, they excluded the purposes of temporary tasks from the system.
