Labor Office application processing is halted or delayed as a result of France’s COVID-19 self-isolation mandate.

Key Points:

  • The Labor Offices have either suspended operations or are only partially operational, affecting work permit application processing.
  • When normal operations resume, longer processing times are anticipated.
  • During mandatory home confinement, people may only leave their residence for essential purchases of food and medicine, to seek medical care, to assist those in need, and for work. Anyone who leaves home must hold an individual statement explaining the reason for leaving confinement.

Analysis & Comments: Employers must be prepared for significant disruptions to employee mobility and all but essential business activity and government services.
