36 Hours

Every manager today needs to know the basics of labor law: as an employee, it is very useful to know about the trial period, the flat-rate days or geographical mobility clauses.

As a manager, he or she must avoid committing major legal blunders, and above all have the right reflexes when faced with legally risky situations (e.g.: request to open all of an employee's emails).

The program corresponds to these two concerns, by unfolding the life of an employee.



Hiring: fixed-term contracts, permanent contracts, trial period; mobility clause; delegation of powers...


Contract execution: salaries and wages, working hours, contract modification: how to react?


Breaks: favour consensus with the approved conventional break. But also resignation, personal or economic dismissal; effects on unemployment benefits.
