French Employment Law

French Employment Law

French employment law is very complex and formal, and in general in favour of employees. Dismissing an employee by disregarding its statutory rights to information, formal notification and prior interview may give grounds to liability and/or nullity of the redundancy process. In addition, the consultation of employees is often mandatory in the framework of most corporate transactions (such as spin-offs and mergers, sale of a company’s shares or business). We work with French attorneys who have specific experience in French employment law and who can assist you in all matters relating to employment law, including:

  • Employee compensation, incentives and benefits
  • Disciplinary sanctions and dismissals
  • Employment contracts
  • Due diligence on employment contracts
  • Fair work-place standards
  • Employee intellectual property rights
  • Individual claims
  • International employment contracts
  • Non-compete clauses
  • Protection of trade-secrets and know-how
  • Relocation of executives and employees
  • Restructurings, reductins-in-force and redundancies
  • Work inspection claims
  • Work council organisations and consultations
  • Work policies

Our English-speaking French lawyers also assist in litigation relating to employment law matters in France.
