Brazil: Authorities launch smartphone app for Employment Workbook
Digital Employment Workbook is a new app for Android and iPhone (iOS). It works as an extension of the physical document and provides information about employment contracts and personal details. This app will make it easier for workers to have their Employment Workbook with them at all times. The physical copy will continue to exist as official documentation.
The employer updates the employee contract information on a database known as e-social, which is the same database from which the app captures the information related to the employee labor contract.
The app provides consolidated labor information in a single environment quickly, enabling workers to monitor their employment history, annual leave and mandatory social contribution. Through the app, the employee has the most up to date information regarding their employment contract.
Relocating employees can download the free app (CTPS Digital) from the online store (Apple App Store and Android Play Store). Further details are available on the Ministry of Labor website (only available in Portuguese).

France: Transnational posting declarations
A new version of SIPSI, the online preliminary declaration concerning the posting of workers in France has been available since July 16, 2019.
Any employer established outside of France who intends to perform a service on French territory must send a declaration of posting to the Labor Inspection (at the place of work) before the employee’s start date in France.
The employer will need to access the website and create an account. If already a SIPSI user, the employer will be required to reset their password to continue using their account.
As a reminder, employees benefit from certain provisions of French labor law during the entire period of their posting, in particular regarding minimum wage thresholds and working hours.
This summary was prepared using information obtained from the Republique Francaise Posting of Workers in France website (in French).
