French court says no working nights for Apple employees

The High Court of Paris handed down a €10,000 fine and a ban and this week preventing Apple employees from working during the night at seven Apple stores within France. The ban prevents Apple from making retail employees work between the hours of 9 PM until 6 AM the following morning. The court also instituted a penalty of €50,000 per provisional infringement if Apple has employees working between those hours.

"This decision is very good and reflects the desire of Justice to enforce the night work", welcomed Eric Scherrer, CFTC trade employees, which emphasizes "a severe sentence."

"We just ask that the law is respected," Thomas responded in turn Bordage SUD trade, which explains that "the shops close at 2100, but the time for employees to put everything in order and work in workshops some may work until 11:00 p.m. ".

Under French law, working at night between the hours of 9 PM and 6 AM needs to be justified to ensure the continuity of economic activity or social utility to be legal.
The stores covered in the judgment include those located in Opéra in Paris Velizy 2 (Velizy-Villacoublay, Yvelines), Parly 2 (The Chesnay, Yvelines), Carré Sénart (Lieusaint, Seine-et-Marne), Val d'Europe (Marne-la-Vallee, Seine-et-Marne), Cape Town 3000 (Nice, Alpes-Maritimes) and Atlantis (Saint Herblain, Loire-Atlantique).

If I received a call at 9:59, I would have to take it and stick with it even if it would take an hour.

It's called customer service and going above and beyond the minimum standards. You got paid for extra hour of work as well.

As for the few odd customers that come in after hours, too bad and so sad for them.

Of course, I'm sure when it comes to you being customer and wanting service....I'm sure you become the biggest A$$ in the room if you don't get great service.

Nope, sorry for YOU. You obviously will NEVER be a successful business owner and chances are you won't even climb the ladder, unless you get a mulligan.

Now don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with that if your happy doing the same job for 30 years....just don't expect to make much more than minimum wage with that kind of work ethic.

Employers do not exist to serve the employees...they exist to serve the customers and be profitable....Investors do NOT invest in failing companies....they invest in profitable companies. Failing companies close and those employees go on unemployment.

I sure everyone else can clearly see...You just will never get it. No light bulb moment in your future.

Best wishes on your survival,

Let's see. I got fired and they had to pay me for over a year because they fired me for wrong cause.

I found a much better job and now have banker's hours and no stupid tech support over the phone. And my salary is about 60% more.

Good luck with your sorry life.
