Employee obligations & disabled workers
Every company in France by law must declare the number of disabled people in their employ. This is known as: ‘la Déclaration obligatoire d’emploi des travailleurs handicapés’ (Mandatory Declaration of Employment of Disabled Workers). This declaration applies regardless of the employee’s work contract.
This declaration is made monthly via DSN (a social security declaration which must be made for each registered entity in France).
This helps build a better national picture of how the employment of disabled workers is progressing in France.
In addition, some companies are subject to the OETH (‘l’obligation d’emploi de travailleurs handicapés’) – this rule requires corporations with 20 or more employees to employ at least 6% of disabled workers. Thus, this declaration of disabled workers allows the government to ensure that corporations are fulfilling their legal obligations.
If this 6% figure is not being adhered to, companies are then obliged to pay an annual contribution to: Agefiph (an organisation who manages public funds to support disabled persons in France).
With this in mind, if you think that you might need extra support with this process, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
