Sort of. Technically, there is still a 35 hour work week. However, there have been a number of changes to the original scheme that make things far more flexible. Again, these may be part of the convention collective that applies to the office.Thanks Bev, I can already see some socialist tendancies that I have been warned about. Is there still a 35 hour working week applicable? Or have they changed that now?
Just to clarify - these are not the only industries with conventions collectives. There are tons of others these days (including a convention collective that applies to paid office workers in not-for-profit associations). It can depend on your APE/NAF code. (We changed our code because one of the organizations claimed we fell under their convention based solely on our code.)- restauration and hotellerie (catering and lodging)
- batiment (civil engineering)
- metal industries
- mining industries
