In France, using a company car to carpool, notably through platforms such as Blablacar, may constitute misconduct that may lead to the employee’s being dismissed.

The Rennes court of appeal, on 31 August 2018, dismissed an industrial tribunal ruling that deemed that such practice did not constitute real grounds for terminating employment.

Despite there being no provision in the internal rules in this matter, the court ruled that, had the employee asked for authorisation from the employer, the latter would have refused as the insurance policy did not cover shared use of the vehicle.
