Ryanair facing huge fines as French court rules on labour case
AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France (AFP) - A French court is on Wednesday to rule on whether low-cost Irish airline Ryanair breached labour laws and should face tens of millions of euros in fines.
The airline has already said it expects a "negative ruling" in the case and plans to appeal.
Ryanair is facing several charges including registering workers employed in France as Irish employees, preventing workplace councils from functioning and preventing access to unions.
The case centres around a facility operated by the company at Marignane, near the southern French cities of Marseille and Aix-en-Provence.
