BBC News spreads falsehood on French riot-causing contract

In Riots erupt after French protests, one can read the following.
Protesters are bitterly opposed to the new law, which allows employers to end job contracts for under-26s at any time during a two-year trial period without having to offer an explanation or give prior warning.
In the case of the contract ending during the first month, there is no prior warning; after the first month but before the sixth, there are two weeks’ warning; after the sixth month but before the end of the two years’ trial period, there is a month’s notice.

The French are already terribly disinformed about the contract and the BBC should avoid spreading falsehood on it, probably in order to justify the students’ irrational and unacceptable behaviour.
