This is a new avenue being considered by the government. Faced with the economic crisis linked to the coronavirus epidemic, the executive is looking for solutions to support companies in difficulty. According to the daily Le Monde, he plans to allow bosses to be able to impose on employees the installation of more paid leave: up to eight days, against six currently, according to the exceptional measures already in place and subject to a branch or company agreement has been concluded.
This track and other provisions were mentioned by the Minister of Labor, Elisabeth Borne, during a videoconference meeting with the social partners last Monday. But it sparked the anger of the unions, reports the evening daily. Yves Veyrier, boss of Force Ouvrière, fears in particular that this provision will affect people already weakened by short-time working, especially in tourism and hotels and restaurants, who have accumulated several days of vacation during these periods of inactivity.
