12.9 million of French have been covered by a request for partial unemployment

As every Wednesday since the beginning of the crisis linked to the sars coronavirus, the statistical service of the ministry of Labour issues a number of interesting indicators regarding the labour market. Part-time unemployment, safeguarding plans, employment, enrollment requests weekly to the job center... Anything goes. Le Figaro reported on these indicators.

part-time unemployment

Since the beginning of the crisis, with 12.9 million employees were covered by a request for prior authorization of part-time workers, reveals this Wednesday, the Dares. From 1 march to 25 may, the State services have received 1.337.000 requests authorization for a total of 5.6 billion working hours. This accounts for approximately 12 weeks at 35 hours for each employee. Concerning the distribution according to the size of the structure, 47% of employees who were the subject of an application worked in an enterprise with less than 50 employees. Larger structures or those with more than 250 employees, accounted for 33% of the workers in the activity partial. Regarding sectors of activity, the requests focused mainly in : activities professional, scientific and technical, administrative and support services (20%), trade (16%) and construction (11%). Finally, at the level of regions, the Île-de-France accounted for 25% of the requests, and the Auvergne, Rhone-Alps, of 13%.


may 25, some 823.000 companies have made a request for part-time unemployment benefit in respect of the month of march. It was about 5.8 million employees. "On the basis of periods-looking activity partial requested by the companies in may 25, 10.9 million workers were likely to be placed in part-time workers in the month of march [...] Only 53 % of these employees have actually been placed in part-time workers this month," according to the Dares). However, all of the claims for the month of march have not yet been filed. These 5.8 million employees, 5.1 million were part of a company with less than 50 employees. "The ratio between the number of employees covered by a compensation request and a prior request is significantly higher in smaller companies ", explains the Dares. A fact that can be explained in part by a cash more important in large structures.

Regarding indemnification in respect of the month of April, 857.000 businesses have made a request. Which represents 5.5 million workers for a total of 556 million working hours compensated. "On the basis of the claims filed on 25 may, only 46% of these employees have actually been placed in operation partial that month," says the Dares. Again, the distribution of requests is largely driven by small businesses.

restructuring proceedings

This is one of the major indicators of the recovery, and that gives an idea of the situation on the employment market. During the third week of may, the number of safeguarding plans (PSE) or social plans - mandatory in companies with 50 employees and a minimum of 10 layoffs – is still below its level at the beginning of march. And for good reason, to avoid redundancy, the executive has put on a drip over a million businesses with the very expensive part-time unemployment measures and loans guaranteed by the State. On the other hand, the real concern comes from the job cuts envisaged, which have doubled compared to the beginning of march "mainly due to plans filed by businesses of larger sizes, placed in a backup procedure or recovery-judicial liquidation in April and may ", explains the Dares.

applications weekly to the job center

From 10 to 16 may, the Pôle emploi has recorded 57.000 new applications for registration of applicants. A decrease of 33.2% compared to the same week last year. If this figure may seem encouraging, it hides a quite different reality. This downturn is explained by the "low number of observed trips during the first weeks of the containment and which is reflected in lower réinscriptions the following weeks," said Dares. In normal times, if the number of entries is more high, the outputs are also... which allows you to regulate the number of job seekers. Except that it's a safe bet, given the situation on the labour market and taking into account the consequences of the crisis, the outlets are very few in number.

On the other hand, and this is encouraging, the number of job offers published online on the 18 to may 24, is 9 % of the pre-containment. A figure that marks a rise compared to previous weeks. However, this increase comes at the expense of the DTAS that are more rare (57% versus 66% in the week before the confinement).
