Squire Patton Boggs has today launched a new app, “SPB: Actualité en Droit Social”, designed to help businesses keep up to date with developments in French employment law. At a time when in-house lawyers and HR professionals are grappling with COVID-19-related regulations, as well as preparing for forthcoming legislative changes, the app provides the very latest employment law information at the touch of a button. Jean-Sébastien Lipski, senior associate from the Labour & Employment team in Paris who devised the app, says, “Our app notifies users of developments in French employment law in real time, providing up-to-the-minute information on legislative changes, administrative decisions or case law. Users can tailor their news updates by selecting topics that are of particular interest or most relevant to them, and with its intuitive search, the app is simple to use, delivering incisive and timely information.”
Caroline Noblet, leader of the firm’s Labour & Employment Practice, adds, “Unlike the common law system where much relies on the role of precedent, French labour law involves a complex and constantly evolving tapestry of legislation and regulations, administrative positions and case law. Navigating and understanding the French legal environment is no simple task, especially in these times when French labour law is a moving target and not necessarily a reassuring constant.
“This app is one of a number of innovations we have launched, which include our award-winning employment law information portal, Global Edge, to help provide companies with accessible, current and consistent information, helping them save time and reduce legal costs.”
The app is available on mobile phones and requires iOS 11.0/Android 4.1 or later.
