Ryanair hit for 10 mn euros over breaching French labour law
Irish airline Ryanair was Wednesday ordered to pay nearly ten million euros ($13.5 million) in damages and interest after being found guilty of breaching French labour law.
A court in southern France, which also fined the company 200,000 euros, awarded the damages after ruling that Ryanair had illegally registered staff based at Marseille airport in Ireland in order to save money on payroll and other taxes. The company had said before the hearing that it would appeal any sanction.
