Justice: The manager of a lolo sentenced to 1800 euros in fines for not having declared two employees


The manager of a lolo in Grand Case was summoned this Thursday, September 20 in the morning before the Saint-Martin correctional court for acts of work concealed in recidivism and for not making available the personnel register.

On November 30, 2016, at the request of the prosecutor, checks were carried out in the lolos. They reveal that CJ, 47, who reopened his restaurant a month earlier, has neither signed a contract nor declared to URSSAF two of his ten employees. The investigators also fail to find the personnel register during the inspection.

Absent from the island that day, CJ was heard on his return and twice by the gendarmes. At the first hearing, he presented the register, deemed "incorrectly kept" by the investigators and who was apparently at the accountant's. As for the two undeclared employees, he indicates that their regularization is in progress and rejects the responsibility on his accountant to whom he says to have entrusted all the administrative tasks. At his second hearing, on December 12, 2016, he brought the contracts of the two employees in question, drawn up in November 2016 and the URSSAF declarations dated December 8, 2016.

"You are a manager, you are responsible for declaring your employees to the URSSAF before they are hired and for establishing their employment contract," said the president of the court. Especially since CJ has already been sentenced three times, including two for similar offenses in 2004 and 2013 and is therefore a repeat offender. The court then finds it difficult to imagine that he could ignore his obligations.

The defense lawyer highlights the fact that of the ten employees of CJ, “eight have an employment contract. All signed on October 21, 2016 with declaration prior to hiring ”. “There are two difficulties,” she admits. But it is, according to her, an "error", or even "a simple delay". She asks the court not to accept the intentional nature of the offense. The court finds CJ guilty and sentences him to a tort fine of 1500 euros and another, contravention, of 300 euros.
