A former stage manager sued the city of Meudon, in Hauts-de-Seine, for "abusive use" of precarious contracts. He had accumulated 499 fixed-term contracts in twelve years. The courts ruled against him.

He felt that the city should have offered him a permanent contract instead of the 499 fixed-term contracts he signed in twelve years, but did not win his case, reports Actu.

Hundreds of missions

Between 2002 and 2014, a show manager carried out hundreds of missions and as many contracts. The use of the CDD by the town of Meudon was systematic and the person concerned saw it as an abusive recourse and brought the matter before the administrative court of appeal of Versailles.

The complainant also requested compensation for overtime hours, which he considered unpaid, to the amount of 23,000 euros. The court did not follow him on this payment, considering that the elements provided did not allow "to presume the reality of the overtime for which he claimed payment", cite News.

Not a "permanent need"

As for the impressive collection of fixed-term contracts accumulated over twelve years, the administrative court found nothing to complain about either. In his eyes, the missions entrusted to the manager did not have a "recurring character" and did not correspond to a "permanent need" which could have justified a permanent contract.

He had not applied when positions were created

No "discrimination" can be blamed on the municipality either since the contract worker had "not applied" during the creation of new positions, in 2013, on the occasion of the opening of the second municipal theater.
