DECRYPTION– As calls to lower the temperature multiply, Le Figaro comes back to what the law says on this conflicting subject.
Shivering, an employee gets up, goes to the thermometer in the shared workspace – open space, in good Frenglish. He stretches out his arm, adds a degree, then two: he’s cold, who would blame him? He then returns to sit down, his mind at peace. A few moments later, one of his colleagues also gets up and, with a sigh, lowers the thermometer one or two degrees. He is hot ! Then begins a stormy discussion, the two getting annoyed at not being able to control the temperature.
This scene, the majority of employees know it. This winter, when companies are called to “sobriety” and energy prices soar, the question of the thermometer takes on a whole new importance. Will employers be able to reduce the temperature? What does the law say about this? Le Figaro returns to the main questions that arise.
