My client is the first non-vaccinated caregiver in France to be reinstated without a court of appeal judging the contrary”

The merits of the case judged in several months

The carer had decided to challenge her suspension before the Paris Labor Court.
The judge ruled in her favor on June 9, 2022, considering that her employer had acted
and demanded that the Institut Curie reinstate the sophrologist and even pay her back wages.
“The employer should have found a solution for this employee.
Another position, telecommuting or any other solution
“, said Me Tarek Koraitem, interviewed by France 3.
The establishment having appealed, the case therefore ended up before the Paris Court of Appeal which rendered its decision this Thursday, December 1, thus confirming that of the Labor Court.

"in a concrete and factual assessment of the conditions in which the decision to suspend the employment contract
was made" and therefore rejected
"the request for a stoppage of the provisional execution “

This victory is at the service of the thousands of caregivers suspended in this situation”
