Concerted actions for job retention program (PACME – COVID-19) 

The Concerted Actions for Job Retention Program (PACME) aims to provide direct support to businesses experiencing a reduction in their activities, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This support is also offered to the self-employed, in particular through collective promoters recognized by the Commission for Labor Market Partners, which are organizations whose actions affect several businesses and people in employment. 

This program from the Ministry of Labor, Employment and Social Solidarity is offered in collaboration with the Commission of Labor Market Partners. It offers direct financial support to promote the training and implementation of good practices in human resource management, and to optimize the functioning of businesses and the labor market. 

Normal business activities must have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, whether by suspension, decline, increase or diversification of activity.
