Good internal communication is a guarantee of motivation and productivity. Being kept informed is a worker’s right.
Being informed about important decisions concerning the company is part of workers’ rights. Workers must, in general, be consulted on points such as the fitting out of their workplace and working hours. They are also entitled to ask questions about the company and to make suggestions. The law requires employers to systematically inform and consult their employees, particularly in the case of mass redundancies or transfer of the company, and regarding all questions of safety at work and worker protection.
The law also provides for obligations on the part of employees, such as respecting safety instructions, reporting potential hazardous faults of the equipment and keeping information about the company confidential (duty of discretion).
