Duty of Care: Employer's Liability for Employees Abroad


French law is clear: “the employer must take the necessary measures to ensure the safety and protect the health of workers”. This legal security obligation applies wherever the employee is, whether at residing in France, travelling in France or abroad, as soon as there is an employment contract.

To meet your Duty of Care responsibilities, organisations must therefore put in place a truly integrated risk management strategy. This could be summed up in three words: plan, act and control.

Demonstrating your Duty of Care capabilities is also the way to attract and retain the best talent and control your costs. This white paper, produced in partnership with the law firm Toison & Associés, explores in detail the legal foundations of the employer's Duty of Care and security obligation. Find out how to develop a risk management strategy  in line with the good practices advocated by the ISO 31030 and get concrete answers to your questions.
