Minister of Social Affairs (France)

Hôtel du Châtelet in Paris, the ministry's seat.

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 Labour (Ministre du Travail), created in 1906, and later, Minister of Labour 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.

The seat of the ministry is the hôtel du Châtelet, an 18th-century neoclassical palace located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris.
