The complaint was launched by Tunisian national Hicham Bouajila, who said he worked for the club’s president Nasser al Khelaifi as an advisor, his lawyer Bertrand Repolt told Reuters.
Bouajila alleges he was only paid sporadically through a Doha-based tennis academy.
“He was never employed by PSG,” the Ligue 1 club were quoted by French sports daily L’Equipe.
Ligue 1 champions PSG did not respond to a request for comment by Reuters.
