French Football Federation has been sentenced on Friday by the Paris Labour Council in a sexual harassment case brought by a formal employee, APA-sport reports citing Get French Football News.
The FFF is accused of failing to meet its obligations as an employer.
The court has ordered the FFF to pay €10k in damages. The court decided that the claimant had indeed “suffered acts of sexual harassment by Mr Marc Varin (Finance Director).”
And the federation failed in its obligations to create a safe workplace – Florence Hardouin, the FFF’s General Manager, had sent a notice to Varin to remind him of his professional conduct and implemented “anti-harassment” training for all employees.
