French companies must do more to ensure that employees work as much as possible at home. According to the French minister of Labour, Elisabeth Borne, this is necessary to prevent a new lockdown against the coronavirus. “The figures on corona from the last few days are not good. We all want to avoid a new lockdown and working from home is a good solution, ” Borne said on French radio. She’s going to talk to the financial sector on Friday about working from home. Banks and insurers in France have seen less use of homeworking in recent months.
