Lusa - Business News - Cabo Verde: New furlough scheme starts Friday, part-time work now allowed




Praia, Oct.30,2020 (Lusa) - The furlough model applied since April to Cape Verdean companies affected by Covid-19 has been extended until December 31, now providing for the possibility of part-time work, according to legislation already in force.

"We must be able to use the furlough for economic recovery and not just as a measure to pay a contribution from the state," Olavo Correia, the finance minister and deputy prime minister, said about this new extension of the simplified model for suspending employment contracts.

However, this legislation, as established in the law, provides for retroactive effects to 1 October, given that the last extension of this scheme expired at the end of September.

When presenting the proposal, taken to the first plenary session of October as a matter of urgency, Justice and Labour Minister Janine Lélis explained that in this new version, furloughed workers will be able to work, at the employer's request, up to a limit of 40% of the workload.

These workers can only be called on for the "functions normally carried out" and do not confer any additional payment to the established.

"An employer who intends to request the provision of work must inform the worker of the hours to be worked and keep a written record of the hours, which must also contain the worker's signature", the law states.

Under this scheme, workers receive 70% of their gross salary, which is paid in equal shares by the employer and the state, through the National Institute of Social Security (INPS).

The suspension of the employment contract, in this way and valid for all companies, began to be applied in April, when the first state of emergency was decreed in Cabo Verde and lasted until June 30.

The next model came into force on July 1, and is valid until September 30, but only for companies with a 40% drop in invoicing, and are still prohibited from making redundancies until practically the end of the year.

According to Lélis, in the first and second phases of this model, the scheme covered 23,421 workers.

"It is a good measure that shows that it is necessary until December 31," she said, defending the proposal in parliament.

Despite the favourable vote, the opposition warned of the risks of rupture in the accounts of INPS, the public institute that manages Cape Verdean pensions.

The Cape Verdean deputy prime minister previously acknowledged that the pandemic is putting 150,000 jobs "at risk" in the archipelago, and that "very strong" state intervention is needed to curb "mass" unemployment.

"The unemployment rate may double in Cabo Verde as a result of the impact of the pandemic. We currently have around 206,000 people in employment. Around 150,000 jobs are at risk," Olavo Correia said.

The unemployment rate in Cabo Verde before the beginning of the pandemic was around 11%, but the government's current forecast is for 20% by the end of the year due to the effects of the crisis on the tourism sector, which guaranteed 25% of the country's Gross Domestic Product, when the archipelago was closed to international flights from 19 March to 12 October.
