Childcare stoppages: compensation bugs

The promise was unequivocal. “If you are a parent who looks after your child, you have at least 90% of your salary,” reassured Muriel Pénicaud on March 18 on Radio Classique. The Minister of Labor then assured that the government would “oblige all employers to pay the additional part up to 90%”. The ace ! Several mothers have told franceinfo that the mechanism did not work. A situation that plunges them into economic distress.

Louise, who stopped working to keep her five-year-old son whom she is raising alone, received only 738 euros, while she normally earns “around 1,200 euros per month”. If Social Security paid 50% of his salary, the employer did not pay the remaining 40%. Several other mothers are in the same situation, and companies often give the same answer. They do not have a year of seniority in their business. “It’s smoke all that, it’s not what was announced by the government,” denounces Chiara, who received only 600 euros in March.

The Ministry of Labor explains that the measure should come into force in the coming days but … without retroactive effect. A decree will indeed be published in order to provide for payment of the compensation completely “without the seniority condition being required”. A delay of several weeks that an advisor to Muriel Pénicaud justifies by law. “At the beginning of March, we eliminated the waiting days that usually apply to work stoppages for the employer supplement, but the law did not allow us to also revert to the seniority condition.”
