In August 2010 the French NCP received a request for review from the Confédération Générale du Travail (CGT) alleging that SODEXO Group had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines regarding employees’ freedom of association and occupational safety and health in Colombia and the USA. In July 2011 the request was extended to include the group's operations in Morocco and the Dominican Republic.
The French NCP took primary responsibility on Colombia-based issues because SODEXO is headquartered in France. The French NCP consulted with the US NCP on all US-based issues.
