New working styles lawyers

Teleworking, remote working, mobile working, multi-jobbing... Driven by the technological revolution, new ways of working gradually gain ground. Beneficial for the company in as much as they can sometimes provide enhanced flexibility at reduced cost, these new working styles are also popular among with employees who want professional autonomy and a career more compatible with their personal and family life. However, as they outline a new type of employee-employer relationship, these new ways of working also raise a number of questions about human resource management as well as health and safety at work. In the unprecedented and changing climate that has resulted from the disappearance of the traditional notion of working space and time, where stress and occupational diseases (including burnout) are rife, the issue of corporate social responsibility becomes all the more significant.

In order to address the issues highlighted by these new ways of working, it is first and foremost essential that you comply fully with all relevant legal requirements, ensuring, in particular, that you have a suitable system for managing working time. Secondly, it is vital that you protect yourself against the risks associated with these new working habits, including the use of new technology, as parliament has recently passed legislation that requires companies to negotiate with trade-unions on the right to disconnect. In this new climate, it is therefore crucial to design the most appropriate systems for organising working time, bearing in mind the specific nature of your business activity, your constraints and your ambitions, and to implement them so as to achieve the dual goals of economic performance and employee satisfaction.
With their expert knowledge of the current legal requirements, our specialist employment lawyers are able to assist you with all these issues that call for both experience and responsiveness. Regardless of the sector in which you operate or the size of your organisation, they will advise and help you, both in France and internationally, with this threefold approach; adaptation, prevention and implementation of the most suitable system for managing these new working styles. More specifically, they will assist you at each stage of organisational change and any potential outsourcing, as well as negotiation, implementation and monitoring of your career and skills management plan. Their expertise and insight into the pitfalls and possibilities involved in this area combine to produce a pragmatic, overarching, collaborative and long-term approach, which will enhance your competitiveness.
