MPs vote to equate giving up post with resignation

Employees who quit their jobs will now be presumed to have quit: The National Assembly on Wednesday, October 5, voted down amendments from the majority and Republicans to limit access to unemployment insurance, despite criticism from the left.

“The employee who has voluntarily given up his position and does not return to work after receiving a letter of intent for this purpose (…) presumed to have resigned”determine the changes adopted by 219 votes to 68 within the framework of the first reading of the unemployment insurance reform bill.

Resistance from the left

The government said it was in favor of this job-cutting measure, “a constantly growing phenomenon”. Employees who no longer come to work, without reason, and end up being dismissed by their employer, can then get an unemployment insurance fund.

The left has taken issue with this phenomenon, citing cases “marginal”she asked not to “weakens the protection of employees”. “What is the reason for these job cuts?”asked Communist Pierre Dharréville, suggesting a link with labor relations.

Stormy atmosphere

Conversely, Dominique Da Silva (Renaissance), along the same lines as Horizons and MoDem, argued that job cuts were disrupting businesses and that it was a matter of planning a measure “clear and fair”. “We do not deprive the employees of any rights. They always have the opportunity to complain. for the industrial court, also emphasized Jean-Louis Thiériot (LR), who criticized some on the left “the choice of the right to laziness”.

In a stormy atmosphere again, the socialists assured that the adopted measure was unconstitutional and not compatible with the standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO).

NR amendment rejected

Unemployment insurance is basically reserved for people who are involuntarily deprived of employment. For those who resigned, there are some limited exceptions. However, a dismissal for resignation constitutes a dismissal for fault and does not currently deprive the dismissed person of his right to benefit from unemployment insurance, even if resignation is “voluntary”.

An amendment carried by Marine Le Pen (RN) was, on the other hand, rejected: it stipulated that the refusal to accept a permanent contract at the end of a fixed-term contract is considered a resignation. “There are some people who cheat” by switching CDD and unemployment benefits while rejecting CDI, the chairman of the far-right group argued.

The majority was also interested in the subject. Amendments on the same measure had been submitted by Horizons and MoDem MPs after three CDI rejections. But they were withdrawn by their authors at the request of the government, which wants to rework such a provision. Marine Le Pen asserted “the virgin modesty of government” in the case.
