Macron Law

Macron Law

Find out all information about this legislation

On July 1, 2016, the so-called “Macron Law” took effect in France, which establishes a series of requirements for transporters.

This law applies to drivers of companies that transport merchandise and travelers established in a different Member State of the European Union. That is, all Spanish transportation companies that operate in France must comply with this new law.

The Macron Law does not establish new rights for displaced workers in France, rather, it has the objective of creating the necessary conditions so that their rights are more respected (right to a minimum salary, payment for extra hours, salary bonuses, etc.).
