Principle and conditions

The strengthened provisions for total temporary layoff (CTTR) is a special measure that makes it possible to reduce or temporarily suspend the activity of employees. This emergency measure will come to an end once the health situation is over.

The measure is being reintroduced from 20 January 2022 to 31 March 2022. However, from 1 October, only businesses facing severe pressure (categories listed in Annex A) or facing pressure due to the loss of visitors or the cancellation of events (categories listed in Annex B) are eligible for CTTR. In addition, to be eligible for CTTR, the employer must not have taken the decision to close the business.

Since 1 October 2021 and from 20 January 2022 to 31 March 2022, the following eligibility rules apply:

  • For activities listed in annexes A and B, companies must be able to prove that their revenue has declined by 30% compared with a reference period in 2019/2020.

CTTR will therefore only be granted where the business continues to operate, unless it is prohibited from doing so by a ministerial decision, and where it has seen a decline in revenue of at least 30%. If these conditions are not met, companies may not use CTTR for their staff and must pay them as normal.

For the month of March 2022, this reduction will be assessed using cumulative revenue for January and February 2020 and for January and February 2022.

Annexes A and B are available in the factsheet below:

Depending on their situation, employers may decide to:

  • Close the business and stop operating following a Ministerial Decision
  • Temporarily close part of the business
  • Reduce activity due to the difficulties 

Employers seeking to benefit from the scheme must be able to demonstrate that it has not been possible to implement home working or teleworking for justified reasons.

 

The employer may proceed as follows:

  • Either implement the temporary closure of all or part of the establishment
  • Or reduce working time below the legal working hours

This decision may cover all or part of the authorised period.

 

CTTR may cover:

  • After the first three months of their contract: All employees of the business on permanent or fixed-term contracts of more than three months (within the limits of the term stipulated in the contract), apprentices and paid trainees
  • The following are excluded: employees who are on sick leave, those who are working full-time from home, temporary workers, casual staff and employees on variable hours
  • Employees who receive a daily allowance for looking after children at home cannot also receive CTTR

 

In the event of redundancy for economic reasons and recruitment of non-permanent staff:

Businesses which have laid off or recruited non-permanent staff (casual staff or staff on short-term fixed contracts) will not be able to receive CTTR if the new staff member recruited or permanent staff in similar positions have been subject to CTTR.

 

Remuneration of the employee in CTTR:

The employer shall pay the employee Partial Activity Compensation to 70% of the gross hourly wage for each hour not worked, on the usual date of payment of the salary.

It should be noted that the Monegasque Government has adopted more favourable provisions for the employees who earn the least. Thus, a safeguard clause amounting to €1,800.00 has been adopted and is applied in accordance with the detailed instructions in the detailed factsheet.

The employee may not object to the employer's decision to have recourse to the CTTR.

The employment contract is suspended during the period(s) when the employee is not working.

Periods of partial activity are treated as working periods for the purposes of entitlements to the various social security and retirement benefits.

 

Paid leave accrued under the CTTR: 

Full information on paid leave accrued under the CTTR between 01/05/2020 and 30/04/2021 is available on the dedicated information sheet by following this link  

You can apply for reimbursement of the aforesaid via the online service, which is available by clicking here
