Reduced unemployment – extended easier access – savings

Companies and employees with problems due to the ongoing corona pandemic will have easier access to short-time work. The Federal Cabinet on Wednesday adopted a corresponding ordinance from Labor Minister Hubertus Heil (SPD). Social contributions are fully refunded at the end of the year. Until now, the relaxation of access to partial unemployment benefit was limited to companies that introduce partial unemployment by September 30, 2021 and contributions were only fully refunded until that date. From August 1 to 25, companies reported partial unemployment for 68,000 people.
