If this "track" remains under study for a later date, it will not be implemented for next year. The government will not introduce in 2024 financial participation of employees when they use their personal training account (CPF), said Thursday the Minister of Labour Olivier Dussopt.
The introduction of a "user fee" for the use of the CPF is "a track under study": it does not appear in the draft state budget for 2024, but "we continue to work on it," said Olivier Dussopt on Sud-Radio. Last May, the Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire had mentioned the possibility of introducing a rest of charge of around 30% for the CPF "except when the employer pays or you are in a difficult situation, for example if you are unemployed".
Public spending down slightly
Olivier Dussopt qualified these remarks: "30% is not the sum that is planned, it is not stopped," he said, adding that "it can be less (...) It depends on the amount of training." The Minister of Labour adds that the rest of the charge could be imposed "when the chosen training has no link with the job one holds" or "not necessarily linked to a professional project".
According to the minister, public spending related to the CPF will be slightly reduced in 2023, rising to 4 billion euros, against 4.2 billion in 2022, thanks to "measures to hunt down fraudsters", better security of the connection to accounts, as well as the elimination of "training that was not qualifying, not serious".
