Arzinger successfully represented international investor in a labour dispute with a former employee
Arzinger's dispute resolution and employment lawyers obtained a decision in favour of the client in a dispute with a former employee. The team elaborated and compiled the evidence base as well as developed a legal stance when the employee appealed against her "problematic" dismissal by the employer. Such actions brought the desired positive result for the client.
The dispute was quite remarkable in view of the following:
1) The dismissal was initiated by the employer based on an internal investigation. It was preceded by the employee's regular violation of labour discipline and labour regulations;
2) Proving the regularity of the employee's violation of labour regulations as a ground for her dismissal was complicated.
Senior Associate Ievgen Diadiuk, Associates Anastasiia Listovska and Kseniia Lotosh worked on the project under the guidance of Counsel, Head of Employment practice Alesya Pavlynska.
