Dimanche, 29 Septembre, 2013

On May 31st, 2011 in Brussels, the ADECCO company was convicted of using racial discrimination in their recruitment policy. The company was fined € 25,000 in damages to SOS Racisme and a symbolic sum of €1 to the Belgian labour union FGTB.

The discrimination case was first revealed in late 2008 in Pote à Pote which exposed the use by Belgium ADECCO of the BBB codes (Blanc, Bleu, Belge)1 and we had kept you informed of its judicial developments. In June 2009, the day of the trial, the penal procedure was declared null and voiddue to the use of French rather than Flemish by the examining magistrate during the eight year investigation.
