Compared to the provisional estimate published on August 5, these results are down slightly (-9,500 jobs) compared to the first quarter, but the relative trend remains unchanged (0.5%).

In the first quarter, private salaried employment increased by 0.4% (88,200).

In total, at the end of June 2022, private salaried employment exceeded its level before the health crisis, at the end of 2019, by 3.8%, or 767,400 jobs. With public employment, the increase is 3.2% or 832,000 jobs.

In detail, in the second quarter, the interim, compass of the employment market, fell by 2.5% (-20,500) after a decline of 1.9% in the first quarter (-15,800). However, temporary employment remains slightly above its level at the end of 2019 (1.6%).

In the commercial tertiary sector, excluding temporary work, private salaried employment continued to increase sharply in the second quarter: 0.8% or 93,200 jobs, after 0.7% in the previous quarter.

Finally, salaried employment in the non-market tertiary sector barely increased in the second quarter of 2022 (0.1% or 12,300 jobs), which brings the increase to 0.5% over one year and 2.1% compared to the end 2019.
