ZURICH, July 11 Adecco, the world's
largest staffing company, said it was under investigation by the
French competition authority and was fully cooperating.
Adecco, which competes with Dutch group Randstad
and U.S.-based Manpower, said in a statement it was
informed on Wednesday that it was under investigation, along
with certain of its competitors, without naming them.
France is Adecco's biggest market and the group said in May
it was starting to close recent underperformance to the rest of
the market there, although conditions remained challenging.
