Abstract: In the coronavirus pandemic, short-time work has been one of the key instruments for stabilising employment in Germany. There has also been a considerable degree of policy experimentation, making the use of short-time work much more attractive. Changes include extension of the payment period, top-ups of the allowance after certain durations, easier access to the scheme and financial incentives for employers. The aim of our contribution is to give an overview of how short-time work in Germany has shaped the degree of furlough and has helped to preserve employment during the current crisis.
