The new unemployment insurance rules will not apply in Overseas


New unemployment insurance rules will come into force in mainland France on the 1st  February 2023, as provided for in the decree relating to the unemployment insurance scheme taken, pursuant to the law on emergency measures relating to the functioning of the labor market with a view to full employment. In particular, a modulation of the duration of compensation will be possible depending on the state of the economy.

In Martinique, Guadeloupe, Reunion, Mayotte (which comes under another unemployment agreement), Saint-Martin, Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Pierre et Miquelon the reduction by a quarter of the duration of unemployment compensation does not apply.

This adaptation of the unemployment insurance reform to the difficulties of the overseas labor markets demonstrates the attention of the Government to the particular situation of the inhabitants of the Overseas Territories. Indeed, the high level of unemployment in these territories and a less steep drop than in France justifies a differentiation of the rules. Taking local realities into account thus makes it possible to protect the purchasing power of vulnerable households, while continuing efforts to enable a sustainable return to work.
