Souhrn

In the face of recession, falling demand and the consequent slowing of production, short-time working and temporary layoff schemes have been extended (or introduced) in many Member States. These schemes, often with the aid of public funds, reduce working time, while protecting workers’ incomes and company solvency; frequently, the time spent not working is used for training instead. This report examines the practice of reduced working time across Europe, and looks in detail at how it is implemented in 10 Member States, with a view to determining the contribution that such schemes can make in implementing the common principles of flexicurity, especially in light of the broad-based consensus they enjoy among the social partners. An executive summary is available.

    Rozšiřujeme flexikuritu – potenciál pro režimy zkrácené pracovní doby: ZPRÁVA ERM ZA ROK 2010 (Shrnutí)

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Nikdy v minulosti nebyly režimy zkrácené pracovní doby tak rozšířené jako v minulých dvou letech. Mnoho členských států své stávající režimy rozšířilo a další členské státy je poprvé zavedly. Obecně se má za to, že tyto režimy úspěšně zmírňují nejhorší dopady této velmi závažné recese.
