BERLIN (Reuters) – The share of companies in Germany using short-term employment schemes increased in November compared with the previous month, the economic institute Ifo said Monday, as partial closures hit jobs in the tourism and restaurant industries.
Ifo said a survey of around 7,000 companies showed that the share of companies using the scheme rose to 28% in November from 24.8% in October.
Short-term employment, also known as Kurzarbeit, allows employers to divert employees to work less or even work during an economic downturn. It aims to stop the immediate shock that leads to mass unemployment.
