Temporary layoff

Layoff refers to a situation in which your employer unilaterally decides
to shorten your working hours and, consequently, reduce your pay, while
the employment relationship is otherwise valid. You may be entitled to
an earnings-related allowance during the layoff period if the other
conditions for the payment of the allowance are fulfilled. Earnings-related allowance might also be paid for the so called situations
comparable to layoffs, if the conditions are met.

In this section, you will find additional information on layoffs and
situations comparable to layoffs. There are also instructions on applying
for layoff period.
