Agreement For Unemployment

This program allows a compensated job seeker to accept one or more jobs while accumulating new rights and slipping the deadline for existing rights that they have not yet used. To acquire new unemployment rights, the applicant must have worked at least 910 hours or 130 days (approximately 6 months) since the last application for unemployment benefit. This can be done either by a single or several periods of employment, regardless of the duration and nature of the contract signed for each organization (of indefinite, temporary or temporary duration). These activities must cease before the claimant has exhausted his or her entitlement to benefits. Some states deal with unemployment insurance rights and determine whether a person is entitled, how much they receive, and how much time they can collect. Although it varies from state to state, the CARES Act increased the duration of benefits from 26 weeks to 39 weeks. From Jan. 1, the additional 13 weeks provided by the federal government are gone. French unemployment insurance is the result of an agreement negotiated between the social partners (national and inter-professional employers` and trade union organisations).

The scheme applies to all employees of undertakings located in geographical areas covered by the Agreement. Under certain conditions and as an alternative to denover benefits, individuals may choose to receive the benefit to which they are entitled by reason of their last period of employment without first having exhausted their unused rights from a previous period of unemployment. This possibility may be created when a jobseeker who receives benefits accepts new work that is better paid than the one who is entitled to the initial benefits. If the jobseeker leaves this choice, he permanently renounces all remaining benefits of a previous right to the AER in order to obtain new rights at a higher rate. The average weekly unemployment benefit does not always correspond to a worker`s income and is usually between 300 and 600 $US. To fill this gap, the CARES Act added a weekly unemployment benefit bonus of $US 600. When the bonus expired on July 31, Trump signed an executive memo paving the way for a smaller weekly bonus of $US 300 (for a period of six weeks), expecting Congress to soon pass a new aid package. That did not happen and most states exhausted the additional six weeks of appropriations. According to the presidential memo, the $300 bonus provision is set to end on Dec. 27 and likely scuttle unused. In an open letter published earlier this week, a group of 127 Republican and Democratic economists supported a second stimulus check as the fastest, fairest and most effective way to help people. The Government approves the agreement if it complies with the legislation in force.

This authorization makes the agreement officially enforceable.. . . .
