The constant evolution of the labor market and an increasing demand for independence from workers have led to the emergence of new forms of employment. Wage Portage has naturally emerged as an innovative approach halfway between employment and entrepreneurship. As a ported employee, it is essential to understand the legal and juridical framework of wage portage as well as the rights and obligations attached to this particular status. In this article, we will address the essential points that govern this tripartite contractual relationship.

Wage Portage: What Are the Rights of Ported Employees?

Wage Portage is a hybrid status between an employee and an independent worker, allowing for a combination of the security of employment and the flexibility of entrepreneurship. This flexible structure grants ported employees specific rights, ranging from compensation to social benefits.

Compensation and Administrative Management

Independent workers are no longer directly compensated by their clients but by the portage company itself. The compensation is then determined and calculated based on the turnover, from which the portage company's management fees and various social charges will be deducted. This provides consultants with financial transparency and a clear view of their compensation, relieving them of the complexities associated with managing freelancers' accounting aspects.

Weepo, a wage portage company, significantly simplifies administrative management by handling the financial, accounting, and legal aspects related to the activities of independent consultants. With its expertise in wage portage, Weepo offers comprehensive support and a digital platform to optimize administrative procedures. Consultants can thus focus fully on their missions while complying with applicable regulations.

Social Protection

The social protection of a ported employee is the same as that of a traditional employee. Similarly, they contribute to and can benefit from social security, unemployment insurance, or supplementary health coverage. This comprehensive social protection is a major advantage of wage portage, enabling consultants to carry out their activities with peace of mind.

Weepo, as a trusted partner of independent workers, is committed to protecting freelancers from life's uncertainties by providing extensive social coverage.

Right to Training

Like a traditional employee, a ported employee has the right to participate in professional training to enhance their skills. They also contribute to professional training by paying a contribution deducted from their salary and credited to their personal training account (CPF).

Before embarking on training, the ported employee can consult the portage company or organize and manage their training themselves. In the former case, the portage company will assist the freelancer in choosing their training. Note that to benefit from administrative and financial support, the consultant must meet certain conditions such as the training being QUALIOPI referenced or the need to be under a work contract during the training period.

Right to Paid Leave

A question often asked by consultants who choose wage portage is about paid leave. Indeed, ported employees are entitled to paid leave. In other words, they continue to receive their compensation when they are on vacation, depending on the rights accumulated by the ported employee during their mission.

In any case, the consultant should refer to the employment contract previously signed with the portage company. This contract may contain specific clauses related to the management of paid leave, such as the calculation methods for paid leave or the notice period to be respected. It is recommended to clarify and negotiate the terms of taking leave with the portage company to avoid any misunderstandings. In any case, this flexibility allows freelancers to find a balance between their professional and personal lives.

Right to End-of-Mission Compensation

Ported employees may be entitled to end-of-mission compensation. This right provides a certain financial security to consultants nearing the end of their contract. This compensation is generally calculated based on the duration of the mission and the salary received by the ported employee. Once again, it is crucial to refer to the service contract and discuss the end-of-mission conditions with the portage company.

Wage Portage: What Are the Obligations of Ported Employees?

Under their employment contract, ported employees are required to meet certain obligations. Here are some of them:

  • Performing the Mission: Carrying out the missions of wage portage entrusted to ported employees implies responsibility both towards the portage company and the client company. These missions must be completed within the deadlines specified in the contract.
  • Complying with Client Requests: Ported employees are required to comply with the rules, standards, and procedures of the client, whether intervening within the company or during remote communications. Some sectors are also subject to codes of ethics, which consultants must be aware of and adhere to.
  • Maintaining Data Confidentiality: In the course of their missions, consultants will handle sensitive and confidential data, and they are obligated not to disclose this information.
  • Issuing Invoices in Compliance with Tax Regulations: Freelancers are responsible for their invoicing, but no worries, the Weepo platform enables generating invoices in full compliance.
  • Meeting Administrative Obligations: These include, for example, submitting documents necessary for managing the freelancer's legal status, such as contracts, reports, etc. Once again, Weepo manages this for its consultants by providing a comprehensive and innovative tool.

The labor law associated with this hybrid status can sometimes be complex, which is why Weepo is committed to supporting its consultants and providing continuous assistance while ensuring complete transparency in the communication of information.
