France -Sunday opening debated -January 02, 2014

A debate that is going on for a while has entered a new phase. In a temporary relaxation of the usual law on Sunday opening some do-it-yourself centres are added to a list of categories exempt from the usual ban on Sunday trading, but it is only operational until July 2015. Trade unions and employers’ organisations will hold discussions in early 2014 over the terms of the Sunday work. The involved ministers say it should involve at least double pay as well as time off in lieu.
