President Klaus Iohannis promulgated on Thursday a law that provides for an increase in the unemployment benefit to people with a contribution period of at least one year, which will be equal to the value of the reference social indicator, according to Agerpres.
The law amends Article 39 in Law 76/2002 regarding the unemployment insurance system and the stimulation of employment.
„The size of the unemployment benefit (…) is granted monthly in a differentiated way depending on the period of contribution, and is equal to the value of the reference social indicator in force at the date of its establishmen, for persons with a period of contribution of at least one year,” says the new law.
In the law in force, the size of the benefit is 75% of the reference social indicator.
Also on Thursday, Iohannis promulgated a law approving Government’s Emergency Ordinance 164/2020 to supplement Government’s Emergency Ordinance 57/2019 regarding the Administrative Code.
