FRANCE – New Record-keeping Rules for Assignments

Recent changes to French labour law for companies sending their employees to France on assignment, under detachment status (i.e. remaining on home payroll).

These employers must appoint a legal representative in France who has access to documents pertaining to the applicant’s employment and the French assignment, and to send the host company in France certain documents prior to the start of the assignment.

Failure to comply with the new requirements could result in fines for both the employer abroad and the host company in France.
