Paris City Hall wants to allow its agents to work with their animals

According to this text, written by mutual agreement with the majority on the left, the reception of an animal must be by “decision of the head of the company”.

Are you going to work in Paris with your cat, your dog? The capital’s city hall wants to give its agents, who are not in contact with the public, permission to work with their pets, provided that the hierarchy and colleagues agree. The city of Paris will “extend the exchange with trade unions” to “to allow requesting agents who are not in contact with the public to come to work with their pets“, the city council decided and approved a request made by the opponent Florence Berthout, mayor (DVD) of the 5th arrondissement.

According to this text, written by mutual agreement with the majority on the left, the receipt of an animal by an agent must be with “the agreement between the manager of the company and the other representatives who make up his working group”. “There are agents who love animals, but others who are afraid of them”, emphasized the deputy (PS) for human resources Antoine Guillou. Paris would thus imitate the neighboring town of Suresnes (Hauts-de-Seine), which since September 2020 has allowed its agents to come to their workplace accompanied by their pets. Grenoble and Nice have taken similar decisions for dogs.

Beneficial effects of the presence of an animal»

“Many scientific studies have shown beneficial effects of the presence of an animal on health”, argued Florence Berthout, citing a 2017 study according to which this presence leads to a 23% reduction in the risk of cardiovascular disease». A pet at the workplace may “easy exchanges between colleagues”added the borough mayor, who says he has tried the experiment “in an unframed way” in his town hall, and prepares a balance sheet “very encouraging”.

The idea is not unanimous in the municipal council. The elected member of LR and related group Anne Biraben condemned one “fake good idea and a potential gas plant that the Parisian administration does not necessarily need”. “This wish is vague on the list of included animals”added Ms. Biraben, according to which a 2006 decree qualifies domestics, “except for cats and dogs, horsesthem friespigs, camels, mice, peacocks, pheasants, carp or silkworms”.
