Kurzarbeit: An Alternative to Lay-Offs, 27/05/2009

 

In response to the global economic downturn, Austria has in place a system wherein employers are permitted to reduce their employees´ working hours while keeping the employment relationship intact. In accordance with this system, employers pay their employees government-subsidized special allowances instead of regular pay in order to cover most of the earnings shortfall.
