Coronavirus: what about the employment benefits in the Walloon Region?

Author: Anne Ghysels (Legal Expert)

The French-speaking Walloon Region limits the impact of the health crisis on its support measures for employment “Impulsion -25 ans” scheme and “Impulsion 12 mois +" scheme.

Both measures are activations of an employment benefit that apply for a certain period of time.

If an employee recruited in the framework of an “Impulsion -25 ans” scheme and “Impulsion 12 mois +" scheme is made temporarily unemployed during the period between 1 March 2020 and 31 December 2020, the granting of the employment benefit and the period for which the employment benefit is granted will be suspended.

The terms of this suspension are discussed within the Forem. These will be integrated into the calculator on the website for your employees involved.
