On the other hand, he released her for the acts of moral harassment.

The former manager of this hostess was given a four-month suspended prison sentence for "moral harassment" and "manslaughter".

The sentence is below the requisitions of the public prosecutor who had demanded, at the hearing of January 27, a fine of 100,000 euros against Carrefour and six months in prison suspended against the manager.

Viviane Monier, who had worked in this store for twenty-seven years, had ended her life in 2017 by leaving a letter accusing her professional environment and the harassment of which she said she was the victim.

“He behaved like a little chef!


The minutes of several meetings of the Chsct (health, safety and working conditions committee) had reported psychosocial risks in this hypermarket.

“The head of the cash desks exercised his managerial power excessively, he behaved like a little boss!

“, had denounced the public prosecutor, during the hearing, reported the regional daily.

“How can we say today that the company didn't know?

“, he continued.

The manager's lawyer (who is no longer stationed in Thiers) says he is thinking about a possible appeal.
