The bill on the a-kassen was debated in the Senate from Tuesday
The bill on “unemployment insurance” will be debated from Tuesday 25 October at the first reading in the Luxembourg Palace. The senators have made their mark in committee on the bill, between the passage of joint action and repeated rejections of penalized CDIs. The rapporteurs have also stipulated that a jobseeker who has refused three CDI proposals at the end of a CDD during the last 12 months cannot be eligible for unemployment insurance.
This text, adopted on 11 October by deputies at first reading, initiates a new reform of unemployment insurance with the aim of changing the rules in line with the state of the labor market. The bill will be debated in the semi-circle, where the left accuses the senatorial majority of “sharpening up” the government’s text. Conversely, LR senators want to go further by reducing the number to a single rejected CDI.
