French Labour Courts are challenging the conformity with ILO Termination of Employment Convention (Convention No. 158) with the limits of severance benefits imposed by national legislation passed in 2017. The ILO has accepted that severance packages reduced by Spain in 2012 were in line with Convention No. 158.
