- Excerpt from French flexicurity:

The National Inter-Sectorial Agreement (the “Competitiveness and Employment Agreement”) was concluded by French trade unions and employers’ associations on 11 January 2013. It is likely to produce numerous and significant changes in French labor law, with one of the declared objectives being to introduce a new French model of flexibility and security, referred to as “flexicurity.” The Competitiveness and Employment Agreement is likely to come into force at the end of May 2013.
