A Law Proposal aiming at insuring the respect of the secularism principle within private companies has been registered on May 15, 2013.

The Law Proposal would create an article L. 1121-1 bis in the French Labour Law Code forbidding the employees to wear any conspicuous religious symbol or clothing.

Moreover, the employees would also have to restrain themselves from performing any activity showing a religious belief.

Finally, the new article L. 1121-1 bis of the French Labour Law Code would have to be mentioned within companies' internal regulations, except companies with a religious activity to which it would not apply.
