French and German Digital staff members who Compaq wanted to lay off before Christmas are still in place, The Register can confirm. The labour laws in two of the largest European countries are preventing them from receiving their P45s (pink slips), according to an informed source. "It's like Michael Caine in Zulu, holding the thin red line against the invading hordes," the source said. "Every time you think you've got rid of one, another pops up to take his place." He said that Compaq wanted to rid itself of the DEC people because they were acting as an irritant to its corporate plans. At present, Compaq is negotiating with work councils to see if a way can be found to resolve the situation. ® Related Stories Zut Alors!
