Abstract

Der Beitrag befasst sich mit der Nutzung der (konjunkturellen) Kurzarbeit durch mittelständische Betriebe. Es zeigte sich, dass kleine und mittelgroße Betriebe dieses Instrument deutlich seltener als ihre großbetrieblichen Pendants nutzen: im Juni 2009 ließen nur etwa 1,6 Prozent der kleinen und 7,4 Prozent der mittelgroßen Betriebe kurzarbeiten, wohingegen das in 19,7 % der großen Betriebe mit mindestens 500 Beschäftigten der Fall war. Zur Finanzierung tragen über die Pflichtbeiträge zur gesetzlichen Arbeitslosenversicherung hingegen alle Betriebe gleichermaßen bei. Da das Kurzarbeitergeld als originäre Leistung der Arbeitslosenversicherung anzusehen ist, kommt es dennoch nicht zu einer Benachteiligung des Mittelstandes. Daher ist es aus Sicht des Mittelstandes ein sinnvolles Instrument, um unabwendbare und nicht dauerhafte Ereignisse abzufedern.
