What are the obligations of the employee whose employment contract is suspended?

Verified 08 March 2021 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

During the suspension the employee does not work on a temporary basis (for example, sick leave, maternity leave or adoption leave).

However, he must respect an obligation of loyalty to his employer.

For example:

  • The employee cannot work for a competitor of his employer.
  • The employee must respect an obligation of discretion. In particular, he shall not have the right to disclose confidential data of the company to which he has access (e.g. trade secrets).

If the employee does not comply with these obligations, the employee may be licensee.
