The new world of work in France
As a res­ult of the COV­ID-19 pan­dem­ic and meas­ures put in place in re­sponse, coun­tries around the world – in­clud­ing France – have ad­op­ted new in­nov­a­tions in the area of em­ploy­ment in a bid to keep their work­ers safe and pro­duct­ive. One such in­nov­a­tion is work from home.More than a year after the pan­dem­ic began, home-of­fice work has proven so ef­fect­ive, many be­lieve it will be­come a fix­ture of our post-pan­dem­ic fu­ture. But re­mote work raises a host of leg­al and ad­min­is­trat­ive chal­lenges. This pub­lic­a­tion – based on the 18 May 2021 we­bin­ar The Fu­ture is Now: The New World of Work in France and hos­ted by leg­al ex­perts Maïté Ol­li­vi­er and Laura Sul­tan from CMS France – ex­plores the im­pact of 're­mote work' in France for both work­ers and com­pan­ies.Watch we­bin­ar re­cord­ing on this top­ic be­low.
