Presentation of the bill on emergency measures relating to the functioning of the labour market

          Bill of law providing emergency measures relating to the functioning of the labour market

The employee may contest the termination of his or her employment contract based on this presumption by bringing the matter before the Labour Court. As a resigning employee, the employee does not receive unemployment benefits.

Current case law: autonomy of the consultation of the CSE on a specific project and on strategic orientations

         Cass. Soc. 21st September 2022, n°20-23.660

There is therefore no reason to suspend the consultation on the specific project until the end of the consultation on the strategic orientations. Consequently, there is no offence of obstruction giving rise to damages.
