Man fired from employer for disliking boozy ‘fun’ culture • The Register

“Fun” may not be a word many associate with the IT crisis, but it’s mandatory in the glamorous world of consulting, according to French court documents that acquitted an employee of alleged party killing.

The judgment of the Court of Cassation – an appeals court and the highest in France – says that the man, known only as Mr T [insert A-Team joke here]She was fired from Cubik Partners in 2015 after four years with the company for “professional incompetence”.

But far from meeting the performance requirements, it has been alleged that Mr. T refuses to adhere to the company’s values. “Fun & Pro, that’s our motto!” Cubik’s website ripples (in French).

However, Mr T said these values ​​manifested themselves primarily as mandatory work events, where “excessive alcoholism” was “encouraged by colleagues making very large quantities of alcohol available” and “included practices promoted by colleagues, including Promiscuity, bullying and incitement to various excesses.”

Mr. T. further claimed that “the company’s ‘Fun & Pro’ culture is characterized by demeaning and intrusive practices in personal life such as fake sexual acts, the obligation to share one’s bed with another employee at seminars, the use of Nicknames to designate people and the posting of distorted and made-up photos in offices.”

Neither “fun” nor especially “pro”, one has to say.

In the November 9 ruling, the court found that Mr. T. had been wrongly fired because Cubik cited his “critical behavior” and his refusal to engage in “incitement to various riots.” This is part of his “freedom of opinion and opinion” and therefore not a reason for termination.

This overturned an earlier ruling by the Paris Court of Appeal in 2021. The rejection of a claim for damages of €461,406 (£400,000/$484,000) was partially overturned and Cubik was ordered to pay Mr T €3,000, with further damages to be paid at a later date. ® Man fired from employer for disliking boozy ‘fun’ culture • The Register
