SNCF Orders to Pay EUR 150 Million in Bias Case to Moroccans

A lawyer for Moroccan railway workers says France's labour court has ordered the national railway to pay EUR 150 million ($169 million) in compensation after finding that Moroccans had faced discrimination in benefits compared with their French colleagues. The ruling on Sep. 21, 2015 came in the case of more than 800 Moroccans hired by the SNCF in the beginning of the 1970's as contractual employees, not under the regular railwayman contract available to French - and later European - employees. Most of the Moroccans have since retired with far less in pension and health benefits. Clelie de Lesquen, a lawyer for the Moroccans, said the court ordered payments averaging EUR 200,000 ($225,000) for each worker, for a total of about EUR 150 million.
