Question from Caroline

Can my employer refuse that I work the May 8 bridge?

Hello Caroline,

This Wednesday, May 8 is a public holiday, to commemorate the victory of 1945, and this day is followed by Ascension Thursday, May 9. Many of you have had the same idea by applying on Friday May 10 to benefit from five consecutive days of rest.

But is it possible that your employer will refuse you this day off to bridge the gap? “There is no right” as such to bridge the gap, as Benoît Serre, vice-president of the National Association of HR Directors (ANDRH) points out on BFMTV. The employer therefore has the right to refuse requests for leave during this periodif circumstances require it.

On the calendar, only May 1 is a day necessarily unemployed And not worked. Workers who are not on leave on that day must therefore receive compensation. However, many employees will be off duty during the May 8 bridge.

Note that this shutdown period represents on average between 4 and 6 billion euros in shortfall for the French economy.

The editorial team wishes you a good day.
