The man was fired from a consulting firm in 2015 for not adhering to the company's "Fun" values.
These included "excessive alcoholism" and "promiscuity," according to the court case.
The court ruled that the employee exercised his "freedom of expression" by refusing to attend.
A French Supreme Court of Appeal has ruled that companies cannot fire their employees for not being "fun" enough.
This comes after a man named Mr. T. was fired from Paris-based consulting firm Cubik Partners in 2015 for refusing to attend after-work drinks and team-building activities.
According to court filings, Mr. T. joined the firm in February 2011 and was promoted in 2014, but was fired a year later, in March 2015, for "professional incompetence" — specifically his refusal to conform to the firm's "fun" values to keep company. Cubik Partners also said that Mr. T was difficult to work with and was a poor listener.
According to the Court of Cassation, the company's "fun" values included regular mandatory social events, culminating in "excessive alcoholism encouraged by colleagues who provided very large quantities of alcohol" and "colleague-driven practices such as promiscuity , bullying and incitement to various excesses."
The court also outlined various "humiliating and intrusive" practices promoted by Cubik Partners, including simulations of sexual acts and being required to share a bed with a colleague.
In a November 9 ruling, France's Court of Cassation found that Mr T's lack of involvement in the company's "funny" values and "critical behavior" as one of the reasons for his dismissal meant that he was wrongly dismissed from Cubik Partners had been fired.
The court ruled that Mr. T exercised his "freedom of expression" by refusing to participate in the company's social activities and that exercising this "basic freedom" could not be grounds for his dismissal.
Cubik Partners did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider.
Mr T's €461,406 claim for damages was previously rejected by the Paris Court of Appeal in 2021, but the latest ruling by the Court of Cassation - a higher-ranking court - partially overturned that ruling.
The court ordered Cubik Partners to pay Mr T €3,000 and will consider Mr T's claim for a further €461,406 at a later date.
