Programs Covering Occupational Mobility

Policy or Initiative Description

Policymakers and social partners should facilitate workers' occupational mobility by establishing new premiums. This could involve a moving allowance (fully deductible business expense for tax purposes) but also continuing education courses. This would make it easier for workers in transition to undergo a change of location, occupation, or professional status.


In France, the professional security contract (CSP) introduced in 2011 provides protection to employees whose positions were made redundant for economic reasons. The employer must pay into a service program provided by the French employment agency, which includes retraining services as well as payment for the redundant employee.
