Employers have an obligation to protect their employees from Coronavirus (or COVID-19) under Article L. 4121-1 of the French Labor Code, which requires employers to take all necessary measures to “guarantee workers’ safety and protect their physical and emotional health.”

Concerning the definition and methods for implementing measures likely to curtail the effects of Coronavirus in companies, employers are strongly advised to involve the occupational health, hygiene and safety stakeholders, such as the Social and Economic Committee (Comité Social et Economique, or “CSE”), when there is one, and the occupational physician.

With this in mind, please find below the top ten measures to implement under French law.
