Chômage partiel, outil partial ? : Comparer le chômage partiel en Allemagne et en France

Abstract : This article examines the workings of partial unemployment (short-time work) benefit schemes that have put in place since 2008 in Germany and, to a lesser extent, in France. The discussion is based on fieldwork in production sites of two automobile manufacturers, one French and one German, that applied partial unemployment schemes between September 2012 and April 2013. The comparison shows that these schemes are polyvalent in that they can be used to pursue different goals and produce different effects depending on the agents involved in applying them. Furthermore, partial unemployment benefits are not limited to the institutional goal of preserving jobs. Partial unemployment schemes modify the relationship between unions and employers and generate disagreements among elected worker representatives. Finally, they can indirectly lead to destruction of jobs by facilitating restructuring in other work sites.
