Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas is denounced in France for irregular work

VERSAILLES.- A former assistant to the Costa Rican goalkeeper of Paris SG, Keylor Navas, has filed a lawsuit in France against the footballer for having employed him irregularly, a source familiar with the case informed AFP this Wednesday.

The complainant, 35 years old and who worked as an assistant in the home of Navas and his family for almost two years starting in March 2021, accuses him of having failed to comply with labor legislation, according to the complaint.

The former employee claims that he never signed an employment contract, which is why he worked without declaring to the authorities, in addition to being subject to hours and conditions that were “at least excessive according to French labor law.”

The plaintiff relates that he was forced to “sleep in an unventilated and humid room, in which he also had to prepare his meals,” according to the text.

He also reproaches Navas, who a few weeks ago announced his departure from the Parisian club, for forcing him to carry a weapon to guarantee the “safety of the family.”

“Mr. Navas clearly committed acts contrary to all the rules of the right to work,” indicated the plaintiff's lawyers, Yassine Yakouti and Lola Dubois, who described their client's working conditions as “a form of modern slavery.”
