Deepdive labour and social security law in France

The salary pay slip is a crucial document for both employee and employer. But the legal rules that determine the pay slip are numerous and often very complex, which implies that it is often to understand and draw-up a correct pay slip. It is therefore important to be familiar with the various rules of French employment law governing pay slips in order to ensure that they are calculated fairly, and to be able to apply them to practical cases where necessary. This training course will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of these rules and of the pay slip, so that you can then make your payroll practices secure.

Après plusieurs années à travailler en tant que gestionnaire de paie pour l'entreprise ADP GSI, j'ai souhaité me spécialiser dans la formation professionnelle, de façon à mieux transmettre mes connaissances sur le bulletin de salaire et son cadre juridique. Freelance depuis 2017, j'interviens dans le cadre de la formation initiale mais également de la formation continue, sur des thématiques allant de la présentation du bulletin de salaire au calcul du solde de tout compte, en passant bien évidemment par les cotisations sociales.
