Ikea has been found guilty of illegally spying on its employees over a number of years and has been fined €1 million by a French Court.

The world’s largest furniture maker was today found guilty of storing employee data that it obtained improperly, while its former chief executive Jean-Louis Baillot was handed a two-year sentence and fined €50,000.

In March this year, it was reported that the French subsidiary of Ikea, which employs over 10,000 staff in the country, is facing fines of up to €3.75 million (£3.2 million) over allegations it paid for illegal access to police files.

Ikea France was accused of buying information from Frances STIC police records system, which tracks names and personal information on millions of criminals, victims and witnesses.

The worrying thing is I seem to recall another case like this involving a big company in France a few years back, either that or it was the same matter and its just taken this long to work itself through the French legal system.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.
