Exemptions for Posted Worker Notifications

July 16, 2019 | France

There are new exemptions from the requirement for employers to submit posted worker notifications for short-term provision of services/assignments or temporary events in France. The change will impact artists, athletes, apprentices on temporary assignment in a company in France and professionals attending seminars, conferences, scientific events or professors/researchers conducting occasional lectures. These changes are intended to save time, costs and resources associated with the notification requirement during the work authorization process.

Two rules have been established to track the duration of stay in France to qualify for the exemption.

  1. Artists and athletes- the maximum duration of the provision of services or the employee’s presence in France is 90 days in a consecutive 12-month period.
  2. Apprentices and Attendees of a conference/conferences/visiting professors and researchers- the maximum duration of stay cannot exceed 12 consecutive months.
