France -Protection for temporary workers -September 01, 2013

Recent rulings from the Court of Cassation clarify the rules that grant fixed-term contract workers the entitled right to severance payment once their contract has ended. The bonus (indemnité de précarité) applies to all temporary workers, including those on fixed-term contracts, known as ‘contrat de travail à durée déterminée’ (CDD). French courts have consistently supported the payment of such a premium due to the insecure nature of such contracts.
