France: Molière clause threatens to sink posted workers reform

The proliferation of "˜Molière clauses' in France could undermine the EU's revision of the Posted Workers Directive, which Paris has been spearheading. EURACTIV France reports.

The idea of obliging workers on public sites to speak in French, known as the "˜Molière clause', has been taken up by a growing number of local authorities in France. But it has stirred concern in Brussels, where lawmakers are working on a stricter set of rules governing the posting of workers.

"I have raised the fact, including within my own political party, that this clause runs against the fundamental values of the EU," said Republican MEP Élisabeth Morin-Chartier (EPP group). "This clause allows the discrimination of workers, under the guise of giving them more security."

As rapporteur on the dossier, the MEP fears the proliferation of the Molière clause at local level and the extent to which it polarises debate between EU member states, will further undermine the already delicate reform of the Posted Workers Directive.

In a letter addressed to the candidates in the presidential election, Morin-Chartier highlighted the threat posed by these clauses. But so far, she has not received a reply from her party's candidate François Fillon.
