Due to Covid-19, der Corona-Krise, Kurzarbeit is extended to the end of December 2021.

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.

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
