French retail group Auchan sanctioned for labor violations

On December 28, the Sverdlovsk Region division of State Labor issued fines for violating labor protection legislation to Auchan, following an audit of it's labor and tax practices.

The inspection of Auchan's activities was motivated by complaints issued to the public prosecution office in Yekaterinburg's Verkh-Isetsky District over Auchan's suspected violations of numerous labor laws, according to Ural Business Consulting.

Following the inspection's discovery of violations, the chief state inspector issued a temporary ban on all of Auchan's business activities.
