What is "chomage économique" in French.

Is it the equivalent of short time working i.e. the person still remains an employee of the company but their working hours are reduced due to an economic slump or global crisis?

I do not think we use the term "economic unemployment" in English, but that this would be "short time working" if that is what "chomage économique" means.

    I think that is a situation when the boss suspends (temporarily) the work contract because of temporary lack of work.
