How many public holidays are there in France each year?

Public holidays commemorate a civil or religious holiday or even a significant event, the list of which is defined by the Code work. In France, the year has 11 public holidays, compared to 10 in Belgium, 12 in Spain and 9 in Germany . In Europe, it is the Cypriots who benefit from the most public holidays with 15 days per year. À Conversely, in the United Kingdom, there are only 8. These dates have been changed. determined according to the history and culture of the countries. There are therefore two types of holidays in our country, civil and religious.

There are 5 civil holidays: New Year's Day and Holidays; since the 1st Empire in 1810, May 1 (Labor Day) is declared unemployment in 1919, May 8 which commemorates the capitulation of Germany, July 14 which celebrates the storming of the Bastille and which is ;ocirc;mé since July 6, 1880, and November 11, Armistice Day of the First World War. nbsp;: Assumption, Ascension, All Saints' Day, Christmas, Pentecost and Easter are the 6 religious festivals holidays in France.

Easter Monday and Pentecost Monday were added in 1886. note: there are some local particularities: in Alsace-Moselle, Good Friday and December 26 are also celebrated. riés and in the DOM, we commemorate the abolition of slavery.

Are holidays paid?

May 1st, Labor Day, is in France the only compulsory unemployed day. and paid by companies (but there may be professions which are exceptions.) For other holidays, the law provides that when the day is not worked ; in a company, the employeeé must be paid à from 3 months of seniority. If the day férié is worked, the employer is not obliged to to pay your employee more, however certain collective agreements provide for an increase.

It is therefore advisable to consult your collective agreement to find out your situation. With regard to bridges, there is no obligation to the employer to grant them. If the collective agreement does not specify this particularity, the employer remains free to decide. He is in no way obliged to pay his employee. that day. On the other hand, the employer can impose a bridge on employees.

Is there a public holiday? is a non-working day?

A day off is not necessarily a day off work. (not worked). The employer has the right to ask for compensation. his employee to work one day on holiday,   with the exception of May 1, Labor Day. Indeed, May 1st is the only public holiday. compulsory for all employees of all companies in France. It is therefore obligatorily  chômé and paid unlike other holidays. But if May 1 falls on a usual day of rest in the company (for example, a Sunday), he will not be paid. and it does not open right to additional rest.
