Planet Labor, 16 March 2020, n°11722 - www.planetlabor.com

The law, which extends and facilitates access to short-time working measures to help businesses manage the Covid-19 crisis, was passed by the Bundestag on Friday 13 March, having been urgently adopted by the federal cabinet two days earlier. The provisions of the law, which also lightens the financial burden on businesses, are valid retroactively from 1 March. This means that requests can be taken into account as soon as they are submitted to the Federal Employment Agency, which monitors and funds the system.
