The administrative penalty for companies not respecting the instructions on teleworking has been reduced to 500 euros per employee, against the 1,000 euros initially planned, announced the Minister of Labor, Élisabeth Borne, this Friday on France 2.

The government has decided to lower the maximum amount per employee to 500 euros, against 1,000 euros so far, while maintaining a ceiling of 50,000 euros per company, to “reassure small businesses on the level of the sanction”, explained the minister .

Stagnating teleworking figures

“We need sanctions for companies that do not play the game”, failing which an “inequity” is established, declared Elisabeth Borne. “We will restore an administrative sanction,” said the minister, after the removal by the Senate of this provision in the bill on the vaccine pass.

“What we see today is that the figures are stagnating: 60% of French people who can easily telework do so, no more than in December,” noted the minister. Senators opposed administrative sanctions against companies that do not play the telecommuting game or do not apply protocols. The Senate Social Affairs Committee considered that “these provisions were part of a coercive logic which was neither useful nor desirable”.

Increase in work stoppages in January

New rebound in the already chaotic course of the bill establishing the vaccine pass: against the backdrop of the presidential campaign, a tweet from the boss of senators LR, Bruno Retailleau, threw up on Thursday evening the close agreement between deputies and senators on this text which unleashes passions. After another reading in the upper house, probably on Saturday, the Assembly will have the last word, during the weekend or at the beginning of the week.

Faced with the record contaminations of Covid-19 (some 300,000 Thursday), the company health protocol provides since January 3, for three weeks, that employers set “a minimum number of three days of teleworking per week, for positions that are allow ”. Previously, it provided for a simple “target” of two to three days a week. Elisabeth Borne underlined Friday “an increase in work stoppages which continues at the beginning of January”, but which has, according to her, no “impact on economic activity”.
