French staffing

The recruiting process in France is full of multiple regulations, so hiring employees becomes very expensive. Within a year, companies have to pay 12 salaries along with a five-week paid annual holiday and between 40 to 60% in social security contributions.

Besides, companies that require services and decide to hire employees must establish a contract under the French Labour Code, which details:

  • The minimum conditions of employment
  • The working hours
  • Overtime payments
  • Holidays
  • Trial and notice regulations
  • Trade union rights

There are also collective agreements negotiated between industry associations and employers’ associations in multiple industries. The principle is that these documents will specify the rights and obligations of each party in a particular industry or occupation. When an employer does not follow the regulations set for that industry, employees can report.

Recruiting involves a lot of paperwork, time and procedures. Luckily, there are other ways of getting to work with professional service providers which do not involve that much time and costs.
