législations sociales

English translation: employment legislation/law

French to English translations [PRO]
Law/Patents - Business/Commerce (general) / framework contract for services
French term or phrase: législations sociales
In the 'Personnel' section of a framework contract containing largely formulaic clauses we find this provision on foreign workers:

"X garantit, via la fourniture d’une attestation du X au Y, la régularité des séjours des ressources internationales utilisées pour tout ou partie des services, notamment au regard des visas de travail, conformément aux législations sociales applicables et aux stipulations du Contrat Cadre."

Although social security contributions were mentioned in the previous clause, would 'social security' still be the most appropriate translation of 'sociales' here, or would 'employment' (derived from the interpretation of 'sociales' as 'pertaining to the workforce') be better here?

I am not able to contemplate 'social legislation'!

Explanation:
Since the text is discussing visas etc. the context is broader than "social security". It's referring to the legally-mandated employment conditions, so employment legislation or employment law would be appropriate.

agree  Eliza Hall: Yes. "Sociale" can mean business (siège social = corporate seat), and in this case it's about all types of legislation directed at businesses (including but not limited to social security etc.).
