Rules of procedure

Article 1: Purpose and scope of the regulation

The present rules apply to all persons participating in a training action organized by BOOST & Partners. A copy is given to each beneficiary. The rules define the main measures applicable in terms of health and safety, the general and permanent rules relating to discipline as well as the nature and scale of sanctions that can be taken against beneficiaries who contravene them and the procedural guarantees applicable when a sanction is envisaged. Each person must respect the terms of these rules throughout the training program.

Article 2: Health and safety

The prevention of accidents and illnesses is imperative and requires that everyone comply fully with all applicable health and safety regulations. To this end, the general and specific safety instructions in force in the organization, when they exist, must be strictly respected under penalty of disciplinary action. In the context of distance learning, it is therefore imperative to respect the health and safety rules of the place where the training is carried out, in particular the beneficiary's company. The training organization cannot be held responsible for incidents or accidents that occur during the training hours, in particular those related to the use of computer and internet tools.

Article 3: Behavior

All beneficiaries are required to behave in a way that guarantees respect for the basic rules of good manners and community life and the smooth running of the training. Any inappropriate comments (harassment, racism...) made by the beneficiary on any of the training materials are subject to permanent exclusion from the training.

Article 4: Access to training

Access to the training courses is via the Google Meet platform with the access and connection information given to the beneficiary at the beginning of the training.

Article 5 : Schedules

The training hours are set jointly by the training organization and the beneficiaries. The training organization reserves the right, within the limits imposed by the provisions in force, to modify the course schedules according to the needs of the service. It will then inform the beneficiaries sufficiently in advance. The beneficiaries are required to comply with the training schedules communicated by the training organization. In case of absence or delay in the training course, the beneficiaries must notify the organization at least by e-mail and justify their absence. Moreover, the beneficiaries cannot be absent during the training hours, except in exceptional circumstances specified by the training organization which must inform the company of these absences beforehand. Any absence or delay not justified by particular circumstances constitutes a fault liable to disciplinary sanctions by the training organization as provided for in the present Internal Regulations. The training organization cannot be held responsible by the beneficiary for not having had access to the lessons given during his/her absence or lateness. The beneficiaries are required to sign the attendance sheet given at the beginning of each session.

Article 6 : Sanctions

Any breach by the beneficiary of one of the prescriptions of the present internal rules may be the object of a sanction pronounced by the head of the training organization or his representative. Any action considered as wrongful may, depending on its nature and seriousness, be subject to one of the following sanctions:
- Oral warning from BOOST & Partners;
- Written warning from BOOST & Partners and forwarding of the information to his/her hierarchy;
- Permanent exclusion from the training with official notification sent by email to the beneficiary and his/her hierarchy

Article 7: Disciplinary guarantees

No penalty may be imposed on the beneficiary without the latter being informed in writing of the grievances against him/her. No sanction can be imposed on the beneficiary without the latter being informed at the same time and in writing of the grievances held against him. When BOOST & Partners considers imposing a sanction, it convenes the beneficiary by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt or by delivery to the interested party against receipt, indicating the purpose of the convening, the date, time and place of the interview, unless the envisaged sanction has no impact on the beneficiary's presence for the rest of the training.

Article 8: Summoning for an interview

During the interview, the beneficiary has the possibility to be assisted by a person of his choice, beneficiary or employee of BOOST & Partners. The summons mentioned in the previous article mentions this possibility. During the interview, the reason for the envisaged sanction is indicated to the beneficiary: he/she then has the possibility to give any explanation or justification of the facts he/she is accused of.

Article 9: Imposition of the penalty

The sanction may not be imposed less than one clear day or more than 15 days after the interview or, where applicable, after the opinion of the Disciplinary Committee. It is notified to the beneficiary in writing, with reasons, by registered letter or by letter delivered against receipt. BOOST & Partners informs the employer of the sanction taken and possibly the parity organization taking charge of the training costs.

Article 10: Representation of beneficiaries

When a training course lasts more than 500 hours, a full delegate and an alternate delegate are elected in a two-round uninominal ballot. All the beneficiaries are voters and eligible, except the prisoners admitted to participate in a professional training action. BOOST & Partners organizes the vote which takes place during the training hours, at the earliest 20 hours, at the latest 40 hours after the beginning of the training course. In case of impossibility to designate the beneficiaries' representatives, BOOST & Partners draws up a statement of deficiency which it transmits to the territorially competent regional prefect. The delegates are elected for the duration of the training. Their functions end when they cease, for whatever reason, to participate in the training. If the titular delegate and the alternate delegate have ceased their functions before the end of the training session, a new election is held under the conditions provided for in articles R.6352-9 to R.6352-12. The beneficiaries' representatives make any suggestion to improve the course and the living conditions of the beneficiaries to BOOST. They present all individual or collective complaints relating to these matters, to health and safety conditions and to the application of the internal regulations.

Article 11: Dissemination of the internal regulations

The rules of procedure are sent by email to the beneficiaries before the training and can also be consulted on our BOOST & Partners website:
