Unemployment: representations to France Travail (formerly Pôle emploi)

The rules for registration on the list of jobseekers and the calculation of unemployment benefits are the same for employees in the private sector and those in the public service. Only the payment of allowances differs: the allowances of private sector employees are paid by France Travail (formerly Pôle emploi), those of public officials are generally paid by the administration, unless an agreement has been reached with France Travail. Specific provisions apply for Mayotte.
