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.

    Ag leathnú solúbthachta agus socrachta – cumas na scéimeanna oibre gearr-ama: TUARASCÁIL ERM 2010 (Achoimre Fheidhmeach)

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Níor tharla sé riamh cheana go raibh scéimeanna oibre gearr-ama chomh feiceálach agus atá le dhá bhliain anuas. Leathnaigh mórán Ballstát na scéimeanna a bhí acu cheana agus chuir mórán eile tús leo den chéad uair. Measadh go forleathan go raibh scéimeanna dá leithéid rathúil i ndáil leis na tionchair is measa den chúlú geilleagrach thar a bheith tromchúiseach seo a mhaolú.
