The system of unemployment insurance for employees in the federal government sector and the private sector:

Employees in the federal government sector and the private sector are covered by the unemployment insurance system in two categories. The first category includes those whose basic salary is 16 000 dirhams or less; the insured employee's contribution within this category is 5 dirhams per month (60 dirhams per year), with a maximum monthly compensation value of 10,000 dirhams.

Those who earn a basic salary of more than 16 000 dirhams fall into the second category. The subscription fee for this group is 10 dirhams per month (or 120 dirhams annually), and the maximum monthly wage is 20 000 dirhams.

The insured's right to claim the amount of compensation must be waived in the event of leaving the state or beginning employment with a new employer. The compensation must be paid within two weeks of the date of the claim and is only due if the insured participates in the insurance program for at least 12 consecutive months.

If the insured does not quit or is not terminated for disciplinary reasons, the insurance program pays him compensation in the form of money for a maximum of three months.

The qualifying employee's compensation is computed at 60% of his base pay from the six months before his unemployment.
