The Tribunal de Grande Instance has cleared Garnier, a unit of L’Oréal, and Laurent Dubois, its manager at the time of the facts, of accusations of racial discrimination in its hiring practices.

Diversity has long been one of the underlying principles of L’Oréal’s Culture and success.

Clichy, June 1st, 2006 - The The Tribunal de Grande Instance has cleared Garnier, a unit of L’Oréal, and Laurent Dubois, its manager at the time of the facts, of accusations of racial discrimination in its hiring practices.

This acquittal, which we were confident of obtaining, confirms that the allegations of racial discrimination against our Garnier subsidiary were unfounded. L’Oréal, which has acted in favour of diversity and against all forms of discrimination for many years, strongly believes it was unfairly implicated in this case.

Human respect is a fundamental principle of L’Oréal’s culture. We firmly believe that diversity is a critical asset and we do not tolerate any form of racism or discrimination.
