Looking forward | Bill for workers on digital platforms

Published on : 29/07/2019 29 juillet Juil. 2019
A look at what’s to come in labor and business law

A bill currently under discussion provides for transparency obligations for mobility platforms (ie those providing transport services with vehicles with drivers (known in French as VTC) as well as delivery services) with regard to their self-employed workers: before each service, they should be informed of the minimum price per service and may refuse to perform the mission. The platform should also publish on its website indicators on activity income, activity time and the average price of missions.
 
Moreover, the independent workers of these mobility platforms could freely connect and disconnect and choose their activity times.
 
A social responsibility charter would also be envisaged, in order to encourage the platforms that so wish to make commitments to improve the working conditions of VTC drivers or delivery drivers, without these commitments constituting a legal risk for the platforms. Thus, this charter and the elements it contains could not constitute elements towards the re-characterization of the contractual relationship into one of actual employment. Finally, the right to vocational training for workers on all platforms would be strengthened.

Changes to the procedure for the recognition of workplace accidents

The procedure for recognizing workplace accidents occupational diseases consists of a succession of transmissions of information and documents between the primary health insurance fund, the victim and the employer. A decree modifies the procedure for recognizing these accidents and occupational diseases.

It introduces new investigation deadlines, eases the declaration procedures, introduces a 10-day period for issuing reservations, arranges the consultation phase of the file in the event of investigations. The victim of an accident at work must inform (directly or indirectly) the employer on the day the accident occurred or, at the latest, within 24 hours. The period of recognition of the occupational disease at the disposal of the fund currently set at three months will be increased to 120 clear days.
The new procedure will be applicable to work-related accidents and occupational diseases declared from 1 December 2019.
