Please join us for a French Employment Law Briefing presented by Seyfarth's International Employment Law practice. Ming Henderson, a French law qualified partner in our London office, and Marjorie Culver, a partner in our New York office, will be leading the webinar.

This session is intended to provide valuable insight for in-house counsel and HR professionals of multinational companies - including those who may not be based in France, but need practical tips to get a clear understanding of the constraints and work-arounds for working time requirements in France.

Key topics that we will address in this 60-minute program include:

  • The 35-hour week and its exemptions
  • Alternatives to the 35-hour week in specific industries
  • Keeping track of working time for specific employees (part-timers, homeworkers, sales force)
  • Mandatory rest periods
  • Staying compliant and avoiding overtime
