Usigned contract

If you and the employer have not signed a cdd contract but you have started the employed period is it still valid

Thanks

Re: Usigned contract

Don't know about in France but, in the UK, your actions (in this case your starting the job and the employer presumably letting you start) are deemed to be an acknowledgement of the terms of the contract.

Re: Usigned contract

How long since you started work? You should usually sign a contract within the first couple of days - if you haven't done so you should chase it.

Re: Usigned contract

That would depend on the terms of the contract. Which remain a mystery, since you haven't seen it. Smile [:)]

Re: Usigned contract

In France it is actually illegal to start work without a signed contract in effect, the opposite to the UK whereas when you have started work you are deemed to have accepted the terms of the contract.

Re: Usigned contract

I had an extension to a contract earlier this year, as the contract is drawn up at the head office it was a week or so before all the paperwork arrived, then the boss was away for a few days, when he got back he called me straight into the office to sign as he said at that time is was working illegally. My daughter started doing a bit of work in the local old peoples home and used to get called in to cover sick staff and those on holiday, every time a contract had to be signed, even if it was only for 1 day or a weekend!!! Tiz no wonder the french companies don't like employing people, I know it is protection for the employee and the firm but a simple assumed contract/letter like the UK would make their life much easier wouldn't it?

In my case it was clearly stated in the contract start date and end date, in actual fact mine stated that the contract would run until the return of the sick driver I was covering for, so it didn't have an exact end date, as soon as the sick driver came back I had to go into the office and sign another contract as they wanted me to stay on for a couple of weeks more. That one had an end date, guess what another driver went of sick so yet again another contract to sign!! went there for what should have been 2 weeks ended up staying for 3 months. Just had my call up papers again and start back there sometime in September date yet to be confirmed, good for the bank account though!
