Are you posting workers in France? You have many mandatories !


Are you a foreign company? Whether you work in the construction sector, transport, trade, temporary employment,  events or even wine-growing, you have the same obligations (the sectors of construction and road transport have some additional specificities).

Your first obligation is to make a pre-posting declaration online (SIPSI Declaration) to provide the necessary information about the worker (s) to be posted.

You will also be required to appoint a representative in France. Its role is to keep in its possession the documents requested during a control, but also to accompany you during a control.

Apply to the competent social security authorities for the certificate of coverage - This document allows social security to be extended to the territory of another State. The certificate ("Form A1" in the European Union) allows the derogation of affiliation to social security system in the country where the posted workers are sent.



If you are controlled in France, you have the obligation to provide your representative with many documents, without delay such as:

  • The posting declaration of your seconded employee (s)
  • A document certifying the actual payment of the salary and the respect of the minimum remuneration
  • A record of hours (mentioning the beginning, the end and the duration of the daily working time of each worker)
  • The copy of designation by the employer of his representative
  • Form A1 or Social Security Maintenance Certificate
  • The work contract


If the secondment lasts one month or more, the company must also provide the pay slips of each employee, or any document attesting the remuneration, including the following mentions:

  • Minimum wage (including overtime premiums)
  • The period and working hours corresponding to the salary
  • Holidays and holidays, and the remunerations relating thereto
  • The conditions of subjection to holiday and bad weather funds, where applicable
  • The name of the collective agreement of the branch applicable to the employee



Beware, if you do not comply with French regulations when you detach workers in France, you risk heavy fines, recently increased during the establishment of the “Professional Future Law” (September 2018). In this case, the ceiling for fines imposed in the event of a breach by the employer has doubled, from € 2,000 per employee seconded to € 4,000. In the event of a repeat offense within 2 years, the fine will be increased from € 4,000 to € 8,000.
