"keep it simple, for people to understand the rules, so that agents can apply it easily," said the mediator to the destination of the social partners. The employer and trade union organisations, that manage Unédic, the organisation in charge of unemployment insurance, "they still think that they make it so that you can't truander, that there is no right, and therefore make things complicated", he regretted.

The ombudsman also puts forward a rise in complaints related to the training (12% in 2016, compared to 4% in 2015). For the mediator, the steering of the plan, 500,000 training courses for the unemployed, launched by François Hollande in 2016, is "to improve". He has received "claims describing refusal of training on the ground that the regional budget devoted to aid individual training (AIF) was exhausted".
"In a majority of cases, it is the job center who has advised the candidates to undertake this training, which has secured the financial arrangement (...) and then the applications were then denied," the report explains. This refusal "on the grounds that the budgets are exhausted, it undermines the political speech on the one hand, and the effectiveness of Pôle emploi on the other hand," says the ombudsman.
Beware of fraudulent job offers
The latter has also expressed the need for "vigilance" in the face another problem: fraudulent offers of employment. "After a lull, these offers reappear" with practices such as requests for cheque cashing or cash transfer.
It pin also the device using the driving licence, "very popular" but the management of which is made "difficult", including the obligation to obtain the licence under 12 months. "It is necessary to make this measure more simple and more secure," according to him. Indeed, the Pôle emploi offers to some unemployed people who want financial aid to spend their B license, a tool which is often essential in the search for a job. The funding allowed through the personal account of formation (CPF) will maybe improve things.
