Does a European citizen employed in France have the same rights as a French employee?

Verified 21 June 2022 - Legal and Administrative Information Directorate (Prime Minister)

Yes. If he is hired in France as an employee, the national of a European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) has the same obligations and rights as a French employee (working time, holidays, remuneration, etc.).

He does not have to obtain a work permit to be hired in France.
