Within the context of the review of the law on protection of jobs which was adopted on 14 May 2013 by the Senate, the Constitutional council of the French Republic censured in its decision dated 13 June 2013 the provisions of the law establishing designation clauses "which disproportionately infringe entrepreneurial freedom and contractual freedom in the light of the objective pursued of mutualisation of risks". This decision takes effect immediately. It does not apply though to "contracts concluded on this basis, on-going during this publication, and linking the companies to those governed by the Insurance Code, the institutions covered by Title III of the Code of Social Security and mutual covered by the Code of mutuality" (please refer to the Legal and regulatory update – May 2013).
