The joint report of the General Inspectorate of Social Affairs (IGAS) and the General Inspectorate of Cultural Affairs (IGAC) on the use of intermittency in France Télévisions et Radio France was submitted to Myriam El Khomri, Minister of Labour, Employment, and Audrey Azoulay, Minister of Culture and Communication.

This report provides an objective and informed diagnosis of the practices of the two public groups on the use of intermittent employment and presents a series of recommendations for these two companies and public authorities.


Recalling that the use of intermittency is justified by the nature of their activity, the report notes that the approach to reduce precariousness in which France Télévisions and Radio France have engaged in recent years with the support of the public authorities, produces results. In particular, the report points out that the importance of “permittence” situations (in which an intermittent performer works more than 900 hours per year for the same employer) must be put into perspective. It also makes it possible to establish that the impact of the activity of the public broadcaster on the financial balance of Annexes VIII and X of the unemployment insurance is particularly limited.


However, the report notes that efforts can and still must be made by France Télévisions and Radio France to ensure that their use of intermittency is even better managed. To this end, it proposes certain areas for improvement. Myriam El Khomri and Audrey Azoulay asked France Télévisions and Radio France to take up their recommendations.


The report also suggests more general developments in the radio and television sector as a whole. It proposes a reflection on a «contract of indefinite duration of issue» for long collaborations. The two ministries will study this approach by associating all the stakeholders and in articulation with the benefit of the scheme of Annexes VIII and X of the unemployment insurance.
