France -Labour law reform will start with the working hours section -November 06, 2015

The government announced that it will begin reforming the labour code early 2016 by tackling the way companies can adjust working hours. The redraft of the 3,800 pages of the labour code probably will take several years. A first step, the revision of the 125 pages on working hours, will be presented as soon as the first quarter of 2016. The government has pledged not to unstitch statutes stating that the legal workweek is 35 hours, which will be part of a framework of rights that will remain enshrined in law and not modifiable by employers and unions.
