The EU is going to change the rules on unemployment insurance for cross-border workersApril 2019
On 20 March 2019, the Commission, the Parliament and the Council reached an agreement on the revision of European rules regarding coordination of social security. From 2021 onwards, unemployed cross-border workers will have their benefit paid by the country where they have worked and no longer by the country they live in.
This reform will eventually save the French unemployment insurance system hundreds of millions of euro. The provisional agreement must now be officially adopted by the European Parliament and the Council.Back to list
