Notice and waiver

09 Jun, 2023

Ms. [T] was hired on September 13, 2010 by the Société d’économie mixte d’aménagement de la ville de Paris (SEMAVIP) as a management assistant.

She was dismissed on May 27, 2016 for economic reasons.

Believing her dismissal to be unfounded, the employee appealed to the Labor Court, which, in a ruling dated June 12, 2018, rejected all her claims.

In particular, the employee demanded payment of her notice period, on the grounds that she could not waive in advance the execution of the notice period or the professional securitization contract.

Before the labour court, the employee admitted that she had requested a waiver of her notice period on April 21, 2016, i.e. before the redundancy procedure was initiated, as she had found a new job on condition that she was available quickly, and had specified, by letter dated April 22, 2016, that she had to be available by Friday June 3, 2016 at the latest.
