Reuters reports a French court dealt Ikea France a 1 million euro fine related to allegations of employee privacy breaches. Plaintiffs claimed the retailer collected and stored employees' information from 2009 to 2012, specifically alleging unlawful reviews of bank accounts and in some instances using personal information to write up reports on staff members. Ikea said it would review the decision before taking further action. Additionally, former Ikea France Chief Executive Jean-Louis Baillot was fined 50,000 euros and given a two-year suspended prison sentence for his role in the case.
