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.

    Extending flexicurity – The potential of short-time working schemes: ERM Report 2010

    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.

    De flexizekerheid uitbreiden: het potentieel van werktijdverkortingsregelingen - ERM-VERSLAG 2010 (Samenvatting)

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Nooit eerder waren er zoveel werktijdverkortingsregelingen als de afgelopen twee jaar. Vele lidstaten hebben hun bestaande regelingen uitgebreid en andere hebben ze voor het eerst ingevoerd. Dergelijke regelingen worden in brede kring gezien als een succesvol recept voor het verzachten van de ergste gevolgen van deze zware recessie.
