Squire Patton Boggs presents a webinar to discuss current hot topics in French employment law and their impact on employers in France.

The election of Emmanuel Macron as President in May 2017 led to an ambitious transformation of France’s labour laws. Following the extensive reforms launched in September 2017, the French government continues to implement changes aimed at reducing France’s exceptionally high levels of unemployment and growing its international competitiveness.

On 17 October 2018 at 3.00 p.m. GMT (4.00 p.m. BST (UK), 5.00 p.m. CEST, 11.00 a.m. EDT, 8.00 a.m. PDT), Pauline Pierce and Delphine Monnier will focus on the key recent changes, including:

  • Secondments in France: relaxation of the rules, stringent controls and sanctions
  • Gender equality and sexual harassment in the workplace
  • Profit-sharing: new opportunities for businesses
  • Expanding unemployment benefits to employees who resign

They will also discuss significant 2018 case law developments.

The webinar will be a 50-minute presentation in English followed by a 10-minute online question and answer session.

Intended to help you manage labour and employment law risk across your international operations, the webinar will be of interest to both HR professionals and in-house counsel.

This webinar is part of our 2018 series focusing on the key labour and employment issues in countries throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and the US.
