Abstract: France is a country with a high level of coverage of workers. The National Collective Agreements protect the majority of workers, despite the fact that in recent years, the collective agreement has lost weight in detriment of the company level agreement. Along with this, outsourcing causes the progressive lack of definition of the limits of the sectors, which makes it difficult to identify the outsourced workers with their collective agreement. The French Labour Code provides protection clauses in case of business transfer, although these clauses are applied in a few cases since 80s. Instead, some national collective agreements include clauses that regulate contract transfers between the old supplier and the new supplier, although with a lower level of protection than one included in the French Labour Code. On the other hand, in the outsourcing scenario in France providers tend to multi-technical/multi-services offers or even FM offers (greater range of services offered). In many cases the application of collective agreements less advantageous for workers is observed. In summary, the regulatory framework in France supposes a system of guarantee of minimum rights for workers, although outsourcing can generate a loss or deterioration of the working conditions of the outsourced workers, especially in comparison with the non-outsourced workers in the same activities developed.
