Apple Stores in France may not make employees work late
The High Court of Paris put the brakes on late-night work by Apple Store employees in France. According to a report in the AFP, Apple is banned from having employees work between the hours of 9:00 PM and 6:00 AM. The ban is the result of a complaint filed by several French labor unions which claim Apple's overnight work policy violated French labor laws.
In France, companies can only require overnight work when the shifts are necessary for the economic viability of the company or offer a social service. The court sided with the unions and agreed that Apple's work policy does not meet those requirements. Besides a ban, Apple also was ordered to pay a €10,000 fine to the unions that filed the lawsuit.
