Appointing a representative in France

The French Labour code (Article L1262-2-1) requires that companies established outside of France, who post workers on French territory, must appoint a local representative. This provider is in charge of liaising with Work Inspection, Police (and Gendarmerie) Services, Customs and Fiscal Administrations. The representative stores all legal documents of the foreign company, namely : Representation contract, Prior declarations of posting, workers employment contracts etc.

Documents to be provided in case of inspection of a posted worker

The foreign company must, without delay, provide its designated representative with the following documents in the case of a Work Inspection check:

- Any document attesting the effective payment of salary and compliance with minimum remuneration

- A time ticket showing the start, end, and core work time daily for each employee

- A copy of the employer’s representative designation

When the duration of posting equals or exceeds 1 month, the company must provide each posted worker’s pay slips or equivalent documents attesting remuneration and comprising the following elements:

- Minimum wage, including overtime bonuses

- Work periods and schedules pertaining to the salary, distinguishing between hours paid at normal rate from hours paid overtime

- Holidays and public holidays, as well as relevant remuneration elements

- Conditions of taxation liability to the “caisses de congés et intempéries”, as required

- If appropriate, title of the Collective Agreement applicable to the employee
