Systematic short time employment

Print page

Systematic short-time employment occurs when an employee normally works full-time in a firm but because of a temporary reduction of work in the business, his or her hours per week are reduced for a temporary period. In such cases, even if the reckonable earnings in any week fall below the Class A threshold (see SW 14 for current threshold), Class A will continue to be paid for these employees (see paragraph 26).
