The concept of 35 hours in France does not refer to the maximum working week, but to the threshold at which the employee will be paid with overtime.

The maximum working time is 10 hours a day, 48 hours a week, with a minimum of 24 hours of rest per week.

An employee under annual quota of days has a high degree of autonomy in organizing his work and hours. He usually works 218 days maximum per year. His daily rest time is 11 hours, and the weekly rest is 35 hours.

The minimum hourly wage is 10.15 euros (in 2020).

The level of employer social contribution varies between :

  • 15% of contract gross remuneration (for wages close to the statutory minimum hourly rate of 10.15)
  • Up to 45% for high incomes

Every employee is entitled to 5 weeks of paid annual leave. It is up to the employer to decide when to take leave.

Also in France there are between 8 and 12 public holidays depending on the year.

The employee is also entitled to paid days of absence for ‘family event’ (birth, death, wedding) which vary between 1 and 5 days. And concerning the birth :

  • Maternity : Minimum 16 weeks (6 before and 10 after birth)

    The employee is paid during her maternity leave (net of State allowances)

  • Paternity : Father is entitled to 11 consecutive days (unpaid)

Each employment contract provides for a trial period of 2 to 4 months (renewable) during which you can separate from your employee if the person is not suitable for the job.

Then there are many possibilities to end a contract of employment (resignation, dismissal for various reasons, etc.) but the most current solution and solicited by the employees themselves, is the Amicable Termination (Rupture Conventionnelle).

The Amicable Termination is at the initiative of the employee, the time of the procedure is about 1 and a half months, the employee will be entitled to a severance pay (depending on his seniority) and unemployment benefits paid by the State.
