Role of the training of elected representatives of the social and economic committee:

To manage, animate, organize a social and economic committee (CSE) it is essential to be trained. Generally, elected officials have not been trained to take on this role. We become elected and then we train.

It is the labor code that defines the functioning of the social and economic committee (CSE), rights, and obligations respectively for elected officials and the employer. It is also necessary to know the Unsafe rules, certain parts of the commercial code, the accounting rules and obligations … not to mention the regulations of intellectual property, the civil code, and the penal code … To this, we must add case law …

Labor law is a law in constant evolution. Reforms are regularly adopted (Rebase law, Macron, etc.)

Rest assured, it is not a question of mastering the totality and exhaustiveness of these texts. Nevertheless, the training will allow the elected official to better dialogue with the employer, to know the scope of the regulations, and to warn him against certain pitfalls.

Any newly elected official should quickly follow basic training after being elected: the role, operation, or obligations of a CSE. This training generally lasts two days.

It allows each elected representative to discover the extent of their obligations and prerogatives.

  • Master the different attributions of the CSE,
  • Validate the practical operation of the CSE and manage the resources allocated to the CSE,
  • Clarify the rights and obligations of CSE members.

What are your rights to benefit from training?

The “legal” training of CSE members:

In companies with at least fifty employees, the full members of the social and economic committee elected for the first time benefit from an economic training course lasting a maximum of five days. The financing of the training is taken care of by the social and economic committee   Training costs are therefore borne by the social and economic committee; they cover educational costs and travel costs for staff representatives on this occasion. They are charged against the operating grant.

These pieces of training are renewed when the representatives have exercised their mandate for four years, consecutive or not

This training is charged to the duration of the economic tuition, social, and union training leave provided.

Training funded with the operating budget:

The CSE or the EC may decide to organize training for its members. The training time can then be taken from the delegation hours available to the members, if applicable.

The operating budget also makes it possible to finance the training of its members (incumbents, substitutes). If the training is paid for with the operating budget (teaching and travel costs), how is the incumbent’s day paid?

  • You can take 7 hours of delegation,
  • You can take unpaid leave. In this case, ask the employer not to deduct the day of absence from your pay sheet, the works council will reimburse the corresponding salary with the operating budget.
  • You can take an RTT day or a paid day off.

Training of company union representatives and local representatives:

The social and economic committee may decide, by deliberation, to devote part of its operating budget to financing the training of company union representatives as well as to the training of local representatives, when they exist.

Can the alternate elected representatives participate in the training of the CSE?

Labor Code indicates that the training benefits the holders and remains silent for the substitutes. “In companies with at least fifty employees, the full members of the social and economic committee elected for the first time benefit, under the conditions and limits provided, from an economic training course of a maximum duration of five days.

However, this article does not explicitly prohibit substitutes of the Labor Code, defines an obligation for the employer intended for incumbents but does not exclude substitutes.

It is strongly recommended that you negotiate their attendance with your employer. The alternates replace the incumbents as soon as they are absent. They must assume their roles properly and should benefit from training. The substitutes are very often the holders of the next mandates.

The absence of any obligation on the part of the employer often raises the issue of covering their salary during training. Several solutions can then be negotiated with your employer.

  • The substitute takes a day off, RTT;
  • The substitute uses delegation hours transmitted by a holder;
  • The CSE reimburses the company with its operating budget for the salary equivalent to the training time of the substitute (salary and contributions);
  • The incumbents accept a reduction in the number of “economic tuition” training days on their mandate in exchange for the presence of substitutes. Example: 4 holders can benefit from 5 days of economic training; this represents a total of 20 days of training. 20 days this could represent the presence of 4 incumbents and 3 substitutes on a 3-day training course (7 * 3 = 21 days).
