Please note: In accordance with Government decisions, reimbursement applications under the strengthened provisions for total temporary layoff (CTTR) for July (and earlier months) will no longer be accepted after 20 August. Applications for CTTR reimbursements for August may be submitted from Friday 28 August and must be received before 20 September 2020.

 

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. These measures stem from the agreement made with the French Republic on unemployment insurance. This emergency measure will come to an end once the health situation is over.

The employer makes the decision based on:

  • The current situation and health recommendations
  • The need to organise the functioning of the company

This decision may be made for all or part of the authorised period.

The employer may proceed as follows:

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

 

The employer shall pay the employee partial activity grant corresponding to 70% of the gross hourly wage for each hour not worked, i.e. 80.69% of the net payment on the usual date of payment of the salary. (These provisions may change depending on specific measures for employees receiving the SMIC (minimum wage), in addition to a ceiling for high salaries envisaged by the French Ministry of Labour).

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

Employees on sick leave and those who are home working are excluded.

Individual employers are only eligible for the CTTR until 31 May 2020.

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

All hours not worked are taken into account for the calculation of paid holiday entitlements. On the other hand, partial activity compensation payments may be disregarded when calculating one tenth of annual remuneration as set out in Article 10 of Act no. 619 of 26 July 1956 enacting the system for annual paid leave since this compensation is not remuneration. It should also be noted that in accordance with Article 11 of the above Act, the compensation may not be less than the amount of remuneration that would have been earned during the leave period if the employee had continued to work.

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

Collating the documents

You will need to provide:

  • Copies of payslips for the last three months preceding the application
  • The company’s bank account details

 

If the reason behind the use of these provisions is a reduction in business due to economic difficulties, you will also need to supply supporting documents showing the decline in revenue from your business (turnover, booking cancellations, etc.). 

The Labour Inspectorate may ask you to supply additional documents.
