From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Minister of Social Affairs and Employment (French: Ministre des Affaires sociales et de l'emploi is a cabinet member in the Government of France. The position was originally known as Minister of Labor (Ministre du Travail), created in 1906, and later, Minister of Labor and Social Security Provisions (Ministre du Travail et Prévoyance sociale). After its 1906 creation, the Inspection du travail (IT, Labour Inspection) service was integrated to it.

After the Second World War, the position was renamed Minister of Social Affairs. In its current state, the position was brought back in 1981 (after almost a decade) under the presidency of François Mitterrand - as a result of the economic situation of France in the 1980s - to oversee issues of social exclusion, unemployment, racism, sexism and social justice.

Its current title is Minister of Labour, Social Relations, Family and Solidarity; the position is held by Xavier Darcos.
