The basics

In a world of generalized and globalized competition, it is important to be able to count on solidarity. A very special kind of solidarity: that of companies who know that none of them is immune to a downturn in the economy, a change in the markets or temporary or structural financial difficulties

The Wage Guarantee Scheme

This is why the Wage Guarantee Scheme (AGS Association) was created: the inter-company solidarity fund, financed by a compulsory employer contribution paid by all companies.

The main mission of the AGS, which has a social vocation, is to accompany and support companies in insolvency proceedings by advancing the funds needed to pay employee claims.

Whether it involves advice, financial advances or monitoring, the AGS is a real social shock absorber that helps preserve employment and maintain the economic viability of the company, and more broadly, supports the rebound of French economic activity.

As a major player in the field of employment, the AGS is proof that commitment and solidarity also exist among companies... because each one knows that it may need them one day, because they all know that they can count on the AGS in case of difficulty.

The Délégation Unedic AGS

The AGS has entrusted the Délégation Unédic AGS with the operational management of the guarantee scheme. The Délégation Unédic AGS compensates employees at the request of judicial representatives, through its centers (CGEA) located throughout the country.

The Délégation Unédic AGS is :

  • 230 people spread over 15 sites in metropolitan France and the French overseas departments and territories
  • An establishment as close as possible to companies in difficulty and to our partners
  • Recognized legal, economic and social skills
  • An actor committed to the treatment of collective procedures
  • Shared values: Solidarity, Commitment and Proximity
