In 2018, the number of temporary workers in France increased by 1.8%, according to Prism’Emploi, the French association of employment agencies. This growth equated to almost 13,000 new full-time equivalent jobs. The increase was mainly driven by the services sector, which saw the fastest growth with a 6.4% increase in temporary employment. However, the decline in the industry sector was relatively small, with a decline of only 0.3%. More –

Social benefits are also more attractive for temporary workers than for ordinary employees. Compared to ordinary employees, temporary workers enjoy higher paid leave and a precariousness premium. Moreover, the multiple experiences they obtain during their temporary employment are an opportunity to meet and test different companies and catch recruiters’ attention. In addition, multiple experiences give workers the chance to refine their professional project and clarify their desires in a way they cannot in a regular job.

To gain a work permit for France, foreigners must find an employer willing to sponsor them. This employer will handle all the immigration paperwork. However, there are other, less straightforward options. The French labor laws are complex, so be sure to do your homework before signing any contract. Employment contracts are also complicated, so make sure you get a written contract before signing anything. It is also a good idea to get a copy of the contract and to ask questions before signing it. You can request a copy of the contract in a language that is convenient to understand. However, the French version will remain legally binding.

While the proportion of people who work on temporary contracts has risen steadily over the past decade, regulations governing temporary contracts are still stricter in France than in most other industrial countries. Furthermore, the use of temporary contracts is still limited and must be analyzed in the context of existing constraints on permanent employment. These constraints encourage employers to offer shorter-term contracts to workers who are not permanently employed. For these reasons, France has created a favourable environment for temporary workers.
