The source adds the following information: "Certains demandeurs d'emploi sont couverts par l'Assurance chômage, mais ne sont pas pour autant indemnisés : ce sont des personnes qui ont épuisé leurs droits, ou qui exercent une activité réduite dont le nombre d'heures travaillées ou le salaire perçu dépassent le seuil permettant le cumul avec une allocation."
