Assisted contract


Dernière mise à jour le :25/04/2023


An assisted contract is a special type of employment contract, for which the employer benefits from aid, which may take the form of recruitment subsidies, exemptions from certain social contributions, or training assistance. The general principle is to reduce, via direct or indirect aid, hiring and/or training costs for the employer. Access to these contracts is limited to people experiencing particular difficulties to employment and their number is spearheaded by the public authorities. They are part of the market sector (this is the case for example of Single integration contract in the market sector / CUI-CIE) or the non-market sector (for example, Single integration contract in the non-market sector / CUI-CAE). In the second case, they are most often signed by associations, territorial authorities or local public educational institutions.


People "in difficulty on the labour market" are: long-term or very long-term jobseekers (for example people who have been unemployed for 12 of the previous 18 months, or 24 of the previous 36 months), beneficiaries of statutory minimum allowances such as the Specific Solidarity Benefit (ASS) or the active solidarity income (RSA), disabled people, people aged over 50 who are unemployed, young people without any qualifications, etc.
