Apply for transfer short-time working allowance

Description

If your company has to permanently cut jobs, for example if a department has to be closed for economic reasons, you may be entitled to transfer short-time working allowance. The employees affected by the permanent loss of work are grouped together in a company organisational unit. For these employees, you can receive transfer short-time working allowance.

As an employer or as a transfer company, you apply, pay and settle the transfer short-time working allowance. When paying wages and salaries to your employees, you first pay in advance. Your employees don't have to do anything.

The transfer short-time working allowance is subsequently settled monthly with the Federal Employment Agency at the headquarters of the payroll office and paid to you retroactively.

The amount of the transfer short-time working allowance depends on the respective income of your employees:

  • 60 percent of the lost net wage for employees without a child in the household
  • 67 percent of the lost net wage for employees with at least one child in the household.

You will receive the transfer short-time working allowance

  • at the earliest from the calendar month in which the notification of loss of work was received by the Employment Agency, and
  • for a maximum of 12 months.

However, you cannot receive the transfer short-time working allowance at the same time as the short-time working allowance or the seasonal short-time working allowance.

Before you receive transfer short-time working allowance, funding can precede participation in a transfer measure. The transfer short-time working allowance and the promotion of transfer measures can be sensibly coordinated. Ask your employment agency for advice on this.

If your company has to permanently reduce staff due to restructuring, you can receive temporary transfer short-time work allowance for these employees, which partially compensates for the loss of earnings during this time and supports the search for a new job.
