I wish to ask my femme de menage to leave. She has been ill

This answer was rated:

I wish to ask my femme de menage to leave. She has been ill for 7 months, but the real reason is an economic one: we have found that we don't really need her. We are not saying it is because of illness. She has worked for 10 1/2 years at a salary of 8 euros per hour for 4 hours a week, getting therefore some euros 1664 per year plus service emploi pension costs. She is demanding Euros 1639.42 in indemnification which I believe is much too high, including prejudice moral, non respect des regles and licenciement abusif.

Hello,

Here a few elements of answer:

- To dismiss your employee, before you even mention it to her, you have to firstly send her a registered letter to invite her to a preliminary interview. This must be written following the rules of Code du travail, strictly.
- Then you have to send her a "lettre de licenciement" motivating your decision by explaining why you do not need her anymore (like you are moving), why you have to employ a permanent replacement (in which case you must prove you are doing so), why you cannot afford her services.
This needs be done before you tell her you wish her to leave... strictly. And except if this is because you need to replace her, and can only do it by hiring a permanent replacement, cannot be done while she is on sick leave.
- In any case, if things are done properly, with 10,5 years seniority she is legally owed a minimum of 2 months of gross salary as indemnité de licenciement. Plus 2 months as indemnité compensatrice de préavis if you do not allow her to work during 2 months after you send her her dismissal letter.
- If she is dismissed without the proper procedure being strictly and entirely followed, she will be owed an additional month of gross salary.
- If her dismissal is not properly motivated (like your situation has not changed and does not justify the dismissal) or if the letter of dismissal is not properly explained, she can claim damages for licenciement sans cause réelle et sérieuse, which will be assessed by a judge if no agreement is reached between parties. Likewise, if she is dismissed while her contract is suspended because she is on sick leave, she can claim damages for licenciement abusif. Prejudice moral would be included in either type of damages.

thank you. does the gross salary include the pension payment I made for her via the mechanism Setvice Emploi, about 50 per cent of he base salary? merci infiniment
Yes, it includes the "cotisations sociales" paid to URSSAF, whichever way you pay them (these include not only compulsory pension payments, but also health insurance and unemployment insurance)

sorry to bother you again but I am having trouble with the attestation pole emploi. i can see how to complete it on the urssaf site but my exemployee says it is invalid in the format I used. Is there a governemnt paper form I must use? I would do it on line but my urssaf number isn't accepted. thank you
You must register on the Pole Emploi website to fill out this form. You will need you URSSAF employe number to create your pages on this website.
