New measures for employment reintegration contracts

Until 31 December 2021 included, the National Employment Agency (ADEM) may offer an employment reintegration contract with an employer to any job seeker who is:

  • registered with the ADEM for at least one month;
  • at least 30 years old. 

Thus, the minimum age requirement of 45 is temporarily lowered to 30.

In addition, until 31 December 2021 inclusive, the monthly share to be paid by the employer to the ADEM is:

  • 50 % of the social minimum wage for unskilled workers in the case of employment of job seekers aged between 30 and less than 45 years;
  • 35 % of the social minimum wage for unskilled workers in the case of employment of job seekers:
    • aged at least 45 years old, in external redeployment, who have the status of disabled employee; or
    • of the under-represented gender.

As a reminder, the employment reintegration contract is an employment measure promoting the professional reintegration of the most fragile populations into the labour market.

It is a contract that alternates practical and theoretical training. It allows:

  • employers to pass on their experience and to give a real employment perspective to older job seekers, people with reduced working capacities or disabled persons;
  • job seekers to show their capacities in a concrete manner all the while acquiring new competencies.

The employment reintegration contract is concluded for a duration of 12 months.
