UWV is too busy with corona crisis to check job application obligation NOW

The UWV is so busy with extra work due to the corona crisis that it is no longer up to some other tasks. Supervision of the obligations of benefit recipients is partly missing, the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment (SZW) reports Monday.

The UWV has recently given “the highest priority” to the timely payment of and decisions about unemployment benefits. The number of applications grew sharply due to the crisis and then there were the emergency measures NOW and TOFA.

An example of policy where control and enforcement is now less strong is the obligation to apply or appear. If jobseekers do not comply with this, this will temporarily have no consequences for the benefit. The measure applies in any case until 1 September.

According to the ministry, the UWV has worked overtime in recent months, but capacity is limited. New employees are therefore recruited and trained at the benefits agency.

Minister Wouter Koolmees (Social Affairs and Employment) has the biannual State of implementation of social security Sent to the House of Representatives on Monday.

A support plan for local businesses

« Helping businesses that risk disappearing in silence “, This is the watchword of the government while the social plans of large groups occupy the center stage. The stakes are considerable since France has 3.5 million self-employed workers, while the 634,000 businesses (excluding wholesale trade and non-commercial crafts) employ the same number of people. Finally, the craft industry brings together 1.3 million businesses and 2.9 million people.

These three categories have already benefited from aid through the solidarity fund, loans guaranteed by the State (PGE) and the deferral of fiscal and social charges faced with the crisis linked to the coronavirus. Insufficient for weakened structures since, according to Agnès Pannier-Runacher, ” depending on the region, 15% to 30% of small businesses do not know if they will finish the year ” Hence a three-part support plan, combining emergency measures and medium-term support.

Reinforcement of immediate aid

In the short term, the State will grant 400 million euros in social security contributions exemption, while the solidarity fund will be extended by one month. With reduced access conditions, since it will no longer be necessary to have been refused a PGE to access the additional assistance of € 2,000 to € 5,000 provided for companies close to bankruptcy. An additional 500 million euros will be mobilized, according to the ministry.

For the self-employed, the Madelin contracts (which make it possible to set up an additional pension and benefit from pension guarantees), as well as the individual retirement savings plans resulting from the Pacte law, may be subject to a “buy-back”. (unlocking) total or partial, up to a limit of € 8,000.

Support digital transformation

According to Bercy, the confinement made it possible to observe ” a real difference between companies that have used digital tools and others “, the first ” having saved the furniture ” Welcoming initiatives such as making online appointments for hairdressers, she called for catching up with French small businesses in terms of digitization. ” According to the clothing federation, 78% of small businesses in the sector have no digital solution “Said the Secretary of State.

In addition to training aid, the plan will rely on an envelope of 750 million euros in loans guaranteed by the Public Investment Bank to launch products and projects.

Boosting businesses in fragile areas

The government also intends to fight against the desertification of city centers, a phenomenon already behind the Action Coeur de Ville plan, launched in March 2018 to revitalize the center of 220 medium-sized cities. The plan is intended to be broader, including larger cities, but also small towns.

The third budget for 2020 debated in the National Assembly

The Banque des Territoires, a subsidiary of the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations, will be on the move to intervene in fragile areas: it will propose to local authorities (municipalities, departments, regions) to build up land to buy vacant premises or shops on the point of closing, in order to renovate and rent them at a preferential rate to traders. The government has put forward the figure of a hundred property companies to renovate ” at least 6,000 small businesses in the next five years ».

Online business competition

The government does not wish to set criteria on the types of activities to be facilitated, leaving it to the local level to select them. However, Agnès Pannier-Runacher drew attention to the fact of preserving the “ diversity of offer : Standardized City Centers May Favor Online Commerce ».

In this regard, the Secretary of State recalled that the establishment of an Amazon-type warehouse, unlike the opening of a commercial area, was not subject to national authorization, but local. Emmanuel Macron meanwhile retained Monday, June 29, the idea of ​​the Citizens’ Convention of a moratorium on new commercial areas located on the outskirts of cities.

Partial unemployment: Pénicaud deplores 850 suspected fraud on 3000 checks

“We will not be complacent with fraudsters,” warned the Minister of Labor. This Monday, Muriel Pénicaud, indicated in an interview with the magazine Challenges that the 3000 first controls on the requests of partial unemployment had led to “850 suspicions of fraud” and four procedures for “swindle”.

“Since May 22, 12,000 (controls, editor’s note) are in progress, including 400 triggered following reports from union organizations or employees. We also carry out random checks. To date, 3000 files have been closed, ”she said.

“50,000 checks by the end of summer”

Out of these 3000 files, “1600 are completely correct”, “around 600 have led to adjustments in favor or against the company” and “we have identified around 850 suspected fraud cases which led to further investigations “Detailed the Minister. “We have even initiated four criminal proceedings for fraud,” she added, citing, “in Hauts-de-France, a business owner who created five companies for 67 employees, but none of them is not declared or has paid social security contributions ”.

“The objective is to carry out 50,000 checks by the end of the summer,” said the minister. Upon confinement and to compensate for the resulting cessation of activity, the government widened the possibility of resorting to partial unemployment in France. According to an estimate by the Ministry of Labor, 7.2 million French people were unemployed one or more days a week in March, 8.7 million in April and 7.8 million in May.

In mid-May, he announced a strengthening of controls, carried out by agents of the Direccte (regional directorates for enterprises, competition, consumption, labor and employment), which received the reinforcement of 300 agents on this theme, “supported by labor inspectors”. In the event of fraud, the sanctions go up to 2 years’ imprisonment and a fine of 30,000 euros, and as regards administrative sanctions, provide for the reimbursement of aid and the exclusion of aid from aid up to 5 years.
