The guy above posting French stuff about the need for permits for EU Nationals to work in France is completly wrong. The law he quotes is 1998. Below is the recent one from the very website he quotes.
I don't understand why anyone would want to confuse people. He must never have worked in France and is just peddling about crap nonsense.
"Suppression of the obligation to hold a residence permit for the Community, Swiss nationals and of the European economic Area
The L121-1 article of the code of the entry and the stay from abroad and the right of asylum provides that the nationals of the European Union (UE), Swiss and of the European economic Area, which wish to be established in France, are not subjected any more to the obligation to hold a residence permit.
If they make the request of it, it to them however is delivered a title, subject to absence of threat for the law and order.
Only remain still held to have a residence permit the nationals of the 10 new Member States entered the UE on May 1 2004 which wishes to carry on an economic activity in France, except for Cypriot and of the Malteses.
Our card of information contains the rules applicable to the Community nationals before the reform brought by the law n°2003-1119 of November 26, 2003 relating to the stay from abroad to France. It is in the course of update following the publication of the decree n° 2005-1332 of October 24, 2005 , which specifies the new conditions of entry and stay of the Community nationals in France."
