New guidelines for assessing unfair dismissal damages in France
The so called Macron Act dated August 6, 2015 announced the introduction of non-binding guidelines to help labor court judges to award damages in case of unfair dismissal.
These guidelines have just been enacted (Decree No. 2016-1581 dated November 23, 2016, published on November 25, 2016).
The indicative grading scale for conciliation was also revised (Decree No. 2016-1582).
Both provisions come into force immediately.
