Adjustment usually takes into account all income considered as earned income in terms of taxation. Income is usually adjusted on the basis of the payment period. In the application, report your hours for the days on which the work was performed. The unemployment fund will decide whether the income is adjusted income and which period it will affect.
Exceptions to the payment period based adjustment are possible, for example in situations where you are laid off with shortened weekly working hours and have other adjusted income from part-time work or business activity, for example.
You are working part-time in May, but will not be paid until June. The pay you receive in June will be taken into account in the June application.
Holiday compensation and holiday bonus for part-time work will nevertheless be adjusted for the month when they were paid, even if you had earned them over a longer period.
You will receive holiday compensation in June for part-time work performed during the entire past year. The holiday compensation will be adjusted in the June application.
Holiday compensation for part-time work is taken into account in the adjustment according to its period of payment. Your April pay includes holiday compensation earned in March. The holiday compensation will be adjusted in the April application.
Example of adjusted income in a case of layoff on shortened weekly working hours
You are laid off with shortened weekly working hours, in other words you are working and laid off for full days over a week. A full unemployment allowance will be paid for the laid off days during shortened weekly working hours. No unemployment allowance will be paid for days with full daily working hours.
During your temporary lay-off, you work commissions for another employer for two weeks. For these two weeks, you will be paid an adjusted daily allowance for five days per week, and the adjustment will take into account both income earned from work performed for the employer that laid you off, as well as income from commissions you have worked during the application period.
If you are paid a salary for more than one month at once, your earnings will be divided so that they affect your daily allowance the month you received your salary and as many following months as you were paid salary for.
You apply for adjusted daily allowance on a monthly basis. Normally, you receive your monthly salary of 1,000 euros each month. However, your salary for May, June and July – 3,000 euros in total – will be paid as a lump sum in July. In May and June, you received your earnings-related unemployment allowance in full because you had no pay days during that period. Since you earned your salary over the course of three months, your earnings will be spread over three months, and one third – 1,000 euros – will be taken into account in your allowance in July. The same amount of salary will be taken into account by us when adjusting your daily allowance for August and September. If you receive a normal salary in August, your adjusted daily allowance of August will be affected by 1/3 of the total salary you were paid in July – 1,000 euros – and your normal August salary of 1,000 euros.
