French emloyment law - Paris industrial tribunal (conseil de prud’hommes de Paris) : 2023 statistics


The Paris Industrial Tribunal (conseil de prud’hommes) is made up of around 800 industrial tribunal advisors.

In 2023, it recorded 10,358 referrals to the merits.

The Court of Auditors published a report on industrial tribunals in June 2023.

1) Saisines au fond

After a drop in the number of referrals to the merits in 2022, the Paris industrial tribunal once again experienced an increase in its number of referrals to the merits in 2023.

Thus, 10,520 referrals to the merits were made in 2021, compared to 9,731 in 2022 and 10,358 in 2023.

With 4,271 referrals, it is the management section which is the most referred to the Paris industrial tribunal, followed by the commerce section seized 3,001 times.

This figure is particularly interesting, especially since at the national level, it is the commerce section which is the most seized.

2) Affaires terminées au fond

While in 2022 10,513 cases were completed on the merits, this figure is decreasing: 9,275 were completed on the merits in 2023.

More generally, while on average 13,321 cases were concluded on the merits per year between 2016 and 2020, this average drops to 10,331 per year between 2019 and 2023.

This slowdown can, however, be partly explained by the covid-19 pandemic which had a major impact on the functioning of justice in 2020, a year during which 8,629 cases were terminated.

It is interesting to see that in 2023, among the 9,275 cases concluded on the merits, 1,505 cases ended at the conciliation stage before the conciliation and guidance office, 5,212 ended with a judgment on the merits , and 2,558 ended for another reason.

It should be noted that there has been a development in amicable settlement of disputes via a conciliation report pursuant to article L1235-1 of the Labor Code.

In this regard, the number of conciliations taking place in BCO is much higher in the management section than in the other sections.
