BREAKING NEWS: FRENCH EMPLOYERS FINALLY KNOW WHAT FATE HAS IN STORE FOR REDUNDANCIES AND DISMISSALS

Published on : 18/07/2019 18 juillet Juil. 2019
By notice issued today, July 17, 2019, the French Supreme court has validated the “Macron scale”. Improperly called this whereas it spans a range of values, contingent to seniority, this scale was attacked for months by activists and some unions of employees. Some employment courts had decided to resist this text, although approved by the Constitutional Council. Whatever the reasons for the French Supreme Court decision of today, employment courts, first and second instance, will have to comply in practice. Failing that, they already know their judgment will be overturned.
For the first time since 1973, effective start of the dismissal rules in France, employers know what fate has in store, if they break the law. The risk is therefore measurable. It even becomes insurable! Only loopholes for employees: bring evidence of discrimination, harassment (these claims currently flourish in litigations), or violation of a fundamental freedom (right to sue, right to property, etc.)
You, foreign or French investors who were scared stiff of coming to France to invest your dollars, come back! The country is beautiful, the economy is healthy, the employees well trained and efficient, and their exit today is as well supervised as their entry.
