REDUNDANCY PROGRAMME

Organized set of measures offering alternatives to dismissal, assistance in arranging re-employment elsewhere and compensation, whose purpose is to limit the number of dismissals and soften the impact of those which are to take place.

Redundancy programmes, which first featured in a 1974 general multi-industry agreement, are now compulsory by law in cases where an enterprise with 50 or more employees plans to dismiss at least 10 of them for economic reasons (see redundancy ). Drawn up by the employer, the programme must be submitted, for their opinion, to the works council and the Labour Inspectorate.
