Posting of Workers

Reinforcement of obligations concerning posted workers

Starting from 1st of July 2017, new rules will come into force regarding mandatory declarations and displaying information for the posted workers. Public and private project owners and principals will see their responsibilities increasing.

New rules regarding declarations

The decree n° 2017-825 of May 5, 2017, clarifies the terms and conditions of mandatory declarations for the project owners. Projetc owners will now be required to obtain a copy of a pre-secondment declaration from each foreign subcontractor or from the employer established outside France who is posting employees in France. It is worth to note, that in case of a workplace accident, another declaration must be sent containing contract information of the employer and the victim, and the details about the circumstances of the accident. Attention, this declaration must be sent within the deadline.

Construction and public works: obligation to display information regarding French labour legislation

This decree provides additional information about the public notices on worksites which must be accessible on the construction or civil engineering sites with an aim to inform posted workers in France about their working rights and conditions (working hours, accommodation, etc.). Let us not forget that the notice must be translated in order to help the posted workers better understand the information.
