88% des demandeurs d’emploi ayant fait l’objet d’un contrôle aléatoire ont justifié de leur recherche d’emploi ou été remobilisés
Pôle emploi - Eclairages et synthèses
À la suite d’une expérimentation visant à tester le principe d’une dissociation des activités de contrôle et des activités d’accompagnement, Pôle emploi a mis en place des équipes de conseillers dédiés au contrôle de la recherche d’emploi.
215 conseillers spécialisés réalisent en moyenne 12 000 contrôles chaque mois, sur la base soit d’une sélection aléatoire des demandeurs d’emploi, soit de requêtes ciblées sur certains critères, ou plus rarement du signalement des conseillers référents.
Pour certains demandeurs d’emploi, le contrôle de la recherche d’emploi est l’occasion d’une remobilisation. 88% des demandeurs d’emploi sont en recherche active d’emploi ou sont remobilisables. 12% sont jugés en insuffisance de recherche d’emploi.
