“La Petit Anglaise” Wins Her Case

Posted by Johannes Schenk on May 1st, 2007 — Posted in Employment Law

An interesting case that is making headlines from France. Catherine Sanderson was working as a secretary for Anglo-French accounting firm Dixon Wilson in Paris. In 2004 she started writing an anonymous blog, La Petit Anglaise, that made reference to the office and was fired sometime in 2006. She sued her employer and recently won her case to the tune of 44,000 euros and costs.

There have been a number of “fired blogger” cases that have made the headlines over the last few years. “La Petit Anglaise” has made the biggest splash and is one of the few cases that resulted in a damage award to the employee that I am aware of. The matter is still up for appeal and may not yet be a closed story.
