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.

    Ökad flexicurity – möjligheter med arbetstidsförkortningar: ERM-RAPPORT 2010 (Sammanfattning)

    Författare: 
    Eurofound
    Arbetstidsförkortningar har aldrig varit så vanligt förekommande som under de senaste två åren. I många medlemsstater har befintliga system utvidgats och i andra har man infört arbetstidsförkortningar för första gången. Den här typen av åtgärder anses allmänt ha varit effektiva när det gäller att mildra de värsta effekterna av den mycket allvarliga recessionen.
