The success of a foreign branch depends not only on its employees, but in particular also on the knowledge and consideration of the relevant labour law.

Employment law in France

If you fill jobs at foreign branches in France, you will quickly find that the legal challenges in the other country are different. For example, French and German contracts for employees are fundamentally different.

Working time regulations, equal treatment regulations and collective bargaining law, and above all dismissal regulations, also obey other, sometimes stricter rules.

A legally impeccable security in the recruitment and administration of personnel facilitates recruitment and avoids problems when leaving the company. The schematic transfer of German contracts, regulatory gaps or the disregard of French peculiarities are sources of conflicts and can become extremely costly for all parties involved.

We will provide you with the decisive information on the essential aspects of French labour law as well as on the existing legal possibilities and risks.
