Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, in terms of "mythical" man-hours you can swap 7 employees at 40h for 8 employees at 35h, so it's antural that it wouldn't be applied for less than 10 employees.

Jerome also commented the other day that there are legal obligation regarding worker representation, etc, beyond 10 employees, which sort of defines what is "small". That threshold might also be a factor.

10 is one threshold, 20 is the next, 50 the next.

So it certainly entered into the calculation if you were under 10 or 20 and would go over that limit by opting to implement the law.
