Abstract

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.

    Ширење на флексигурноста - потенцијалот на шемата на работење со скратено работно време: ИЗВЕШТАЈ НА ERM 2010 година (Резиме)

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Шемите на работење со скратено работно време никогаш досега не биле толку забележливи како во последниве две години. Многу земји-членки ги проширија своите постоечки шеми, а други ги воведоа за првпат. Таквите шеми беа нашироко забележани како успешни при ублажувањето на најлошите ефекти од оваа многу сериозна рецесија.
