In February 2005 the French NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a multinational enterprise operating in France had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines by threatening to transfer and relocate some or all of their business outside of France in the context of negotiations on employment conditions.

The NCP evaluated the request and concluded that it did not merit further consideration due to lack of evidence to support the trade union's allegations. The specific instance was concluded in 2009.
