French employment law has been undergoing significant changes in recent years to streamline and modernize the labor market. Companies have a variety of options enabling them to build their French workforce effectively and to manage and incentivize their personnel. This modernization is being complemented by measures seeking to reduce labor costs, not only for low earners (no employer social security contributions payable) and middle-income earners (competitiveness and employment tax credit on salaries up to €3,600 gross per month), but also for researchers (research tax credit and “innovative new company” status). The hiring of young and senior job-seekers is also being encouraged.
