(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #292 - Unemployment insurance: A vicious decree as a wish (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 22 Mar 2019 08:44:01 +0200

An order issued on December 30, 2018 strengthens the sanctions for the unemployed. It is a true criminalization of unemployment that the government inscribes in law. ---- On September 5, the law " for the freedom to choose one's professional future " consolidated the supervision of the State over Unedic and announced a reinforcement of the sanctions with regard to the employees deprived of employment. We only waited for the decrees of application which fell at the end of December as Christmas presents ... Among these decrees, we find the " n ° 2018-1335 of December 28, 2018 relating to the rights and the obligations of the applicants of employment ", published in the Official Journal of 30 December. This decree is a real criminalization of the unemployed. It standardizes and generalizes a set of sanctions in case of " failures Jobseeker: in the event of absence from an appointment, a benefit or training, in case of refusal of two reasonable offers of employment, and in case of insufficient job search, the applicant is struck off one month the first time, two months the second and four months the third.

The decree of shame
And when we talk about the criminalization of the unemployed, with these new procedures, we find all the terminology of a judicial treatment: penalties on the ground, a staggering of penalties in case of recidivism and a probationary period of two years from first sanction. Another important point: previously, in case of cancellation, the allowances of an unemployed person were kept and reassigned to his re-enrollment. The decree deletes them definitively (except for the first breach of an appointment): it is the double penalty !

The decree also modifies the terms and conditions of implementation of the " reasonable offer of employment ", these offers deemed reasonable according to your profile and resulting in a penalty if you refuse two. The text removes consideration of the salary previously received and replaces it with the average salary of the local market. This means that an applicant can no longer refuse a lower-paying job ! The decree also removes the legal limits to distances and travel times previously set at 30 kilometers or one hour of maximum journey home ! If we add to this the new orientations of Pôle emploi that can direct an applicant to a job no longer according to his job but his skills, we may quickly arrive at a situation where any job may be suitable to any applicant. This " reasonable offer " had never been really implemented before, considered too coercive by the staff of Pôle emploi. But from now on, with the powerful algorithms that are gradually replacing the agents, the sanctions are likely to develop massively.

This decree is simply shameful. The management of unemployment by the government is always more brutal. Several associations and unions have already started legal proceedings against the decree. Let's bet that the ongoing mobilizations allow it to be repealed.
