Full Unemployment Benefits – Prevention and Detection of Undue Payments

general assembly on January 17, 2018

In its report on the prevention and the detection of undue payments under the full unemployment benefit scheme, the Court of Audit noted that numerous tests are carried out by the National Employment Office (Office national de l’emploi – Onem) in order to limit improper payments. However, there are still some problems related to the screening of the particular situation of the unemployed persons. Given the principle of a gradual reduction of benefits, the Court also recommends to provide a better framework for the valuation data of the professional career. Currently, there is a risk that unemployed people will receive less than the amounts due.
