Unemployment Benefits in France

Tuesday 01 November 2011

We are pleased to release our guide to unemployment benefits in France.

There is no automatic right to unemployment benefits in France unless you have paid into the system, or you have transferred rights from your country of origin within the EU.

However, signing on with the French job centre service Pôle Emploi is potentially useful to those seeking to set up a business in France, as it grants rights to reduced social security contributions for up to three years.

In our guide we consider:

  • Registration with Pôle emploi
  • Export of contribution-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Business Start-Up Support
  • Unemployment Benefit

You can read it all in Guide to Unemployment Benefits in France.
