European Directive 96/71/EC defines the status of “posted worker” as allowing an employee working in a European Union Member State to be posted to work temporarily in another Member State.
Companies established outside of France posting workers must therefore comply with several mandatory conditions and formalities, and comply with the provisions provided for in French Employment Law for posted workers with regard to certain matters.
Appointment of a representative in France became mandatory for foreign companies as of the entry into force of the “Macron” Law on 6 August 2015.
Failure to appoint a representative is punishable by a €2,000 fine per posted worker (€4,000 in the case of a repeated offence within one year) up to a total limit of €500,000.
