it is clear that the review of the act Work is proving to be one of the priorities of the beginning of the quinquennium, Macron, other issues involving the employee and the company may arise. The salary savings for example. In the material, the actors have already in mind the key points that would speed it up a little more its development.

at the end of 2016, there were approximately 8 million employees beneficiaries of a programme of profit sharing, an envelope of the outstanding placed of $ 123 billion euros. “We can still distribute profit-sharing and equity participation in enterprises, says Jérôme Dedeyan, associate at Eres, a specialist independent of the salary savings. This can be done by continuing the incentives (reduction of social contribution, the incentive to make the savings pay…).”

such measures are taken since 15 years and it should be recognized that this is bearing fruit : in 2015, 20 % of companies with fewer than 50 employees had a system of salary savings from 3% in 2001. That can be done ? “On the occasion of the revision of the thresholds, we would not be against a lowering of the liability for this type of device, even in liberalizing a little bit the amount.” What would be the revision and simplification of the formula for calculating current. A decision source of forceful discussions with the social partners.

a Generalization of the Perco in all the companies

another measure, more consensual, would be well received : the generalization of a collective retirement savings Plan (Perco). “When there is a sharing of profit in companies, with profit-sharing and participation, then the employee would have the choice between the compartment short [editor’s note, company savings plan] and the compartment long [editor’s note, the Perco],” says the associated to Eres. However, currently, only the PEE is mandatory, the Perco is optional.

This situation is not without some difficulties when the employee leaves the company. “The termination of the employment contract does not constitute a reason for releasing, in no more that unemployment, and assuming that the employee finds other employment, the new employer does not always implemented in Perco”, tip the mediator of the Autorité des marchés financiers in its report in 2016.

the Results the employee must assume the cost of management. If its Perco remains “asleep”, that is to say, without any payment or arbitration of the part of the employee, the principal will have been reduced by half at the end of fifteen years, calculated the services of the mediation of the AMF. The generalization of the Perco would put an end to these vagaries of sudden and sources of disputes. Jérôme Dedeyan there is also “the occasion to build this base of savings by funding that the country needs.”

Enable the development of employee share ownership in the non-rated

the Other point where the new government is expected : employee share ownership. “On the part listed, the best thing would be not to touch it, lance Eres. On the non-side, on the other hand, there are a series of measures to be taken to develop employee shareholding. Many companies in the ability to do so are laid down by the technical details”.

Among these, the relationship with the employee shareholders. As the establishment of a mutual fund business (CIPF) is too expensive, the shares of the company are held directly. This implies that every employee should be convened in a general assembly. Eres suggests to follow the model of the supervisory board of the FCPE for the creation of “a group of employee shareholders, who would elect a representative to the general assembly. This would free up a lot of family business leaders. “This stumbling block is resolved, it remains to deal with the issue of liquidity, which has not changed since the law Larcher, 2006 and which remains a point blocker.

These changes suggested by Eres are only a few sites of possible negotiations. Remains to know what the government intends to make, knowing that the program of the President Macron has not developed particular point on the subject.

But at the same time, Muriel Penicaud, with its initiatives in favour of the employees when she was in the human resources of Danone, could bring significant advances on the subject. Just as Christophe Castaner, in office since Wednesday, may 17, relations with Parliament and spokesman of the government, and until recently at the head of the COPIESAS (policy Council participation, profit-sharing, employee savings and employee shareholding). This allowed him to be one of the pillars of title 2 of the act Macron, which deals with the salary savings. All hopes are therefore permitted for the salary savings goes to a new level.
