Seconding employees to France
In the framework of the ITER Project, foreign companies based outside France may need to temporarily second their employees to France to work on the ITER site as prime contractors of the ITER Organization or of the ITER Members' Domestic Agencies, or as sub-contractors of these prime contractors.
In French labour law, the notion of transnational secondment of workers refers to all situations in which an employer normally based outside France is required to operate in France with its own employees in order to fulfil a service.
Such employers must comply with European and French laws and regulations, in particular labour and immigration laws and regulations. It is their obligation as an employer.
The administrative steps to be followed to second employees to France have to be anticipated well in advance, considering the deadlines for the administration to grant the necessary administrative authorizations.
Some steps are compulsory for all foreign companies, such as the secondment declaration. For more information on secondment declarations please refer to the following website where information is provided by the French state in English (here).
!! But depending on the nationality of the company and of the employees, different administrative steps shall be followed in addition to the secondment declaration before the employee can be seconded to France to work (e.g., request for visa and/or work authorization).
For information on the steps to be complied with, please see the following ITER Organization presentations:
In order to support companies in this process of seconding employees to France, an immigration law expert is made available by the ITER Organization to companies which have a contract either with the ITER Organization or one of the ITER Member Domestic Agencies.
