France -Ryanair fined for avoided social security payments and union bashing -October 03, 2013

A French court found Ryanair guilty on charges of breaches of labour law and imposed a fine of €10 million on the company. Ryanair was accused of social dumping and as well hindering the activities of works councils and trade unions. From 2007 to 2010, the carrier employed its Marseilles based workers on Irish contracts and posted them in France, thus avoiding having to pay French social fees and labour charges. Ryanair announced its actions were in line with European legislation and that it will appeal to the European Court of Justice.
