A Circular DGT n°1 dated 18 January 2013 returns on the legislative and regulatory rules contained in the Act dated 26 October 2012 concerning creation of job for the future "contrats d'avenir" (in particular article 6 of said Act) and the Decree dated 18 December 2012 concerning implementation of obligations of the companies on occupational gender equality. These new rules aim to strengthen the effectiveness of the law on gender equality, providing the collective bargaining predomination on the actions plan, the duty to send the actions plan to the Administration and an increase in the number of actions to be negotiated in the collective agreement or to provide in the actions plan.

The Circular explains in particular the combination between the Report of situation ("Rapport de situation comparée") and the collective agreement or the actions plan.
