As part of the measures taken by the government to limit the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus, the Ministry of Family, Integration and the Greater Region has introduced the "leave for family support".
The purpose of this leave is to enable employees, self-employed workers and public officials to provide care for a disabled or elderly adult person, following the closure of a day-care centre, a training or work facility.
Given that some structures will not be able to resume all their activities immediately after the end of the state of crisis, the government has decided that leave for family support shall be maintained beyond the declaration of the end of the state of crisis.
It is therefore possible to request leave for family support from 25 June 2020 until 25 November 2020.

Due to COVID-19, the General Directorate for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises has set up a certified emergency allowance (2021) available to the self-employed.

Since 3 May 2021, it is now possible for adults to register online for a professional apprenticeship at ADEM.
