Measures to Promote Senior Employment

Measures to Promote Senior Employment

In order to promote active aging in businesses and firms in France, Article 87 of the Financing of Social Security Law (2009) states that companies must have made agreements or action plans to promote the employment of older workers. As of 1 January, 2009, any company or group of companies of at least 50 employees that does not sign such an agreement or elaborate a plan to do so is subject to a financial penalty.
