Regulatory Flexibilities for Foreign Workers in Private Security during the 2024 Olympic Games

The relaxation of the rules for foreign employees during the 2024 Olympic Games, as set out in article 25 of the law of 19 May 2023, mainly concerns those engaged in private security activities. The main changes are as follows:

1. Lifting of restrictions on working hours: Normally, working hours in France are regulated with a maximum of 35 hours per week for full-time workers, and strictly controlled overtime. For the period of the Games, from 1 July to 15 September 2024, these restrictions will be lifted for foreign employees in the private security sector. This means that they will be able to work overtime beyond the usual limits without the usual restrictions.

2. Greater flexibility: This measure allows for greater flexibility in the organisation of work, which is essential to meet the increased security requirements during the Games. Timetables can be adapted more freely to cover Olympic events, which often take place in the evenings and at weekends.

3. Specific working conditions: Although Article 25 allows for greater flexibility, it also requires that measures be taken to guarantee the health and safety of the workers concerned.

This could include compensation for overtime work and provisions for compensatory rest.

The aim of these measures is to ensure that safety requirements during the Olympic Games can be fully met, while offering foreign workers working conditions that remain fair despite the relaxation of the rules.
