The German government will promote a new law that states people from other EU countries will have to stay in Germany for five years before they can claim full unemployment benefits.
The decision was made to bring this law to parliment after Wednesday the court ruled that people from the 27 other EU countries will be able to seek unemployment money after six months in the country. The amendment must be approved by parliament before it can be implemented.
EU nationals of other member states must grant full access to their labor markets, but an EU court has decided that Germany is allowed to cut unemployment benefits to people who have made little or no effort to get a job.
