Welfare – Social Protection
In the field of welfare and social protection, employees’ expectations are rising and legal and regulatory requirements and obligations are increasingly difficult to manage. As such, companies must be proactive and anticipate the related risks.
When providing legal advice and assistance and/or conducting a targeted spot audit, Soulier Avocats’ Labor & Employment lawyers strive to develop innovative solutions to reduce the risks of adjustment by the URSSAF (Unions de Recouvrement des Cotisations de Sécurité Sociale et d’Allocations Familiales, i.e. the body responsible for collecting social related contributions). Specifically, they assist companies during URSSAF’s investigations and audits, and if URSSAF orders an upwards adjustment of the sums paid by company, they can challenge the decision and defend the interests of our clients before the Arbitration Committee of the URSSAF, the Social Security Tribunal and the Court of Appeals.
We also advise businesses in connection with the negotiation, implementation and modification of company-sponsored supplemental retirement schemes (e.g. so-called Article 82, Article 83 schemes that are governed by Articles 82 and 83 of the French tax Code, etc.) and death and disability insurance schemes (invalidity, disability, death, medical expenses, elderly care).
