Emergency Employment Policy (2009)

Active Years: 2009

Following the sudden downturn in the world economy, large numbers of temps, contract employees, and other nonregular workers found themselves out of work. With the economic outlook and employment climate apparently set to deteriorate still further, we put together a set of emergency recommendations on employment policy. To help those already out of work, we focused on the various stages of the job-search process and proposed the establishment of a jobseeker’s support benefit and of counseling for jobseekers, as well as improved professional training. As a preventive measure for the future, we proposed an increase in public investment to restructure the labor market and facilitate job creation.
