Hello Patricia,

I'm going to work for a investment bank in Paris but I'm waiting for a better opportunity. If I have a contract for 3 years and want to leave this company what is the notice time? Do I have to pay anything to the company? How does that work?

Thanks for the help.
Best regards

You don’t mention it here but the type of contract you’ve got is probably a « CDD de mission ». This means that it may be broken under strict conditions and preferably for serious reasons, on both sides. If initiated by the employer, you will get a compensation equal to 10% of your total gross salary.
As you would like to initiate the contract rupture, I strongly advise you to do so after 18 or 24 months (legal period of time), with a serious reason, and to negociate.

Best regards,
Patricia Moerland
