In labor law there are a large number of concepts which are not at all clear. Fortunately, on the contrary, there are obvious facts that it is worth remembering.
Ainsi, un salarié embauché pour travailler à temps partiel ne doit jamais être amené à travailler 35 heures.
Practical example – if an employee works 30 hours per week:
The Court of Cassation recently recalled that if the part-time employee works 35 hours, even once over the duration of the contract, his contract can be reclassified as a full-time employment contract, and the latter can therefore request a reminder of salary corresponding to the difference between his part-time and full-time.
So pay attention to additional hours
because the litigation risk is really not neutral.
Last reminder about part-time work, the minimum duration (except for derogatory collective agreement) is now 24 hours per week, with some exceptions (students under 26 and employees expressly requesting to work less than 24 hours for certain reasons).
