Support to hire employees who have worked in Monaco for more than 20 years

Via this measure, employers that hire an employee who has worked for at least 20 years in Monaco, on a continuous or interrupted basis, for one or more employers, and who has been made redundant for economic reasons associated with the COVID-19 crisis, will receive reimbursement of their social security contributions [Social Services Compensation Fund (CCSS), AMRR (additional employee retirement fund), ASSEDIC (unemployment insurance), CET (technical balancing contribution)] for a period of six months.

The following conditions apply:

  • All employers are eligible, with the exception of those who have made staff redundant for economic reasons. In this case, employees enjoy a legal and mandatory priority right to re-employment
  • Employees who have a legal and mandatory priority right to re-employment by their previous employer as a result of redundancy for economic reasons are not eligible for this measure (see above)

 

The procedures to be completed are as follows:

  • Employers who hire an employee under this safeguarding clause must inform the Employment Office of this fact
  • The Employment Office will automatically reimburse employers’ social security contributions [Social Services Compensation Fund (CCSS), AMRR (additional employee retirement fund), ASSEDIC (unemployment insurance), CET (technical balancing contribution)] at the end of the quarter for a period of six months

 

Support to employ young people 

Companies which recruit young Monegasque nationals or residents, aged under 26 years, who are seeking their first job or first long-term workplace experience and are registered with the Committee for Graduate Employment and the Youth Employment Unit, receive reimbursement of their employers’ social security contributions [Social Services Compensation Fund (CCSS), AMRR (additional employee retirement fund), ASSEDIC (unemployment insurance), CET (technical balancing contribution)] for a maximum period of two years.

The following conditions apply:

  • All employers are eligible, unless the employer made the same post redundant for economic reasons less than a year before hiring the employee
  • The employer must offer:
    • An immediate fixed-term contract for at least two years or
    • An immediate permanent contract
    • A fixed-term contract for two years or a permanent contract following an initial fixed-term contract for a maximum period of six months
    • The employer commits to not making the employee redundant for the planned duration of the fixed-term contract or for two years where a permanent contract is concluded, except in cases of gross misconduct or unfitness. If the employer fails to do this, they will have to return all of the social security contributions that were paid by the State

 

This measure is open to employers until 30 June 2021.

 

Sponsored access to employment

This measure involves pairing a jobseeker with a professional, the sponsor, who works in the field in which the jobseeker would like to work. The idea is to help the jobseeker with their search for employment (personalised advice, tools, methods, etc.).

The following conditions apply:

  • Eligible jobseekers must be registered with the Employment Office, and be Monegasque nationals or residents. They are selected by the Employment Office based on an application and interview
  • The sponsor is selected by the Employment Office depending on the jobseeker’s plans

 

This measure is open to jobseekers until 30 June 2021.

The arrangement is governed by a tripartite agreement between the sponsor, the jobseeker and the Employment Office.

 

Expanded pre-recruitment internship

The pre-recruitment internship is a three-month training period that allows companies to promote access to employment by training an applicant before recruiting them, under a tripartite agreement between the Employment Office, the employer and the trainee.

Depending on the recruitment needs of the employer, the Employment Office offers a pre-recruitment internship to one or more jobseekers. The potential applicant(s) is/are presented to the employer by the Employment Office. The employer then chooses an applicant from those presented and invites them for interview. The trainee retains the status they had prior to their pre-recruitment internship, and continues to receive an allowance and their social security coverage.

 

The following conditions apply:

  • To be eligible, jobseekers must be Monegasque nationals or residents in receipt of a benefit
  • The employer must offer a clear, formalised training plan, describing the job to be offered at the end of the training period, as well as the knowledge and practical skills that the trainee must acquire during the internship in order to take up the job offered, which may be a fixed-term contract for a minimum of six months or a permanent contract

 

This measure is open until 30 June 2021.

 

The Return to Work Committee

The Department of Employment and the Employment Office meet quarterly with representatives from each of the employers’ associations/employers’ federations as part of a Return to Work Committee. The Employment Office presents the profiles of individuals of particular interest to employers in the relevant economic sector. The relevant association/federation shares their specific human resource management needs (recruitment, training, etc.). The federations pass the information to employers and give feedback to the Employment Office regarding the profiles presented.

The following conditions apply:

  • Eligible jobseekers must be registered with the Employment Office

 

This measure is open until 30 June 2021.
