The legal framework

Court of Appeal of Chambéry, May 20, 2008, RG n°07/02162

In an unfair competition dispute, investigations carried out by a private detective which only concern aspects of the professional life of the person being monitored are accepted in the name of proof of the violation of a non-competition clause.

Cass. Soc. December 6, 2007. No.: 06-43392

The judges decided that a bailiff's report initiated by the shadowing of a detective was lawful as a means of proof.

Criminal law

In the context of unfair competition which falls within the scope of criminal law, the shadowing of an employee as a method of proof is admissible. (Article L 121-7 does not apply)

All CONFIDENCIA INVESTIGATIONS reports are admissible in court
