The Corona-Krise is causing problems for numerous industries. To deal with the situation, many companies register short-time work. According to the latest preliminary data from the Federal Employment Agency, 6.7 million people took advantage of short-time working benefits in May – after 6.1 million in April and 2.46 million in March. In July, companies reported that around 190,000 people are expected to be on short-time work.
What does Kurzarbeit mean? – Was ist Kurzarbeit?
Short-time work is the temporary reduction in regular working hours in a company due to a significant loss of work. The affected employee works less or not at all.
Short-time work can be an instrument to avoid dismissals in the event of temporary absence from work. In order to partially compensate for the loss of earnings of the employees in these cases, the employees can, under certain conditions, claim compensation from unemployment insurance, the so-called short-time work allowance, Kurzarbeitergeld.
How can I use my time sensibly? – Wie kann ich die Zeit sinnvoll nutzen?
Are you currently a Kurzarbeiter/in? And have you thought about how you could use the time sensibly? How about learning to program? Many are currently using their free time to learn something new, to educate themselves, and above all – not to stand still. With education, new opportunities arise and you can take control of your career and future.
