Sooo....

So Intraparfum wanted to get rid of him in 2010 after losing a contract and not having enough work left. Fair enough. But instead of just doing the normal thing of offering compensation and making him redundant. They employed him at full pay for 4 years to do nothing. Now I'm well aware that France has some very employee friendly labour laws, but I'm pretty sure that the redundancy compensation does not equal 4 years of full time pay.

Now Intraparfum have been found guilty of breaching french labour laws, which is going to cause them all sorts of problems with the unions going forward. They have paid out 4 years worth of salaries, AND they have to pay another €50k on top of that as compensation. All because they wanted to try and force someone out illegally...

Foot meet Mr Shotgun...
