Cases

Reasons of termination of the employment contract can be defined verbally

In one of the cases conducted by the Law Office we faced the issue regarding the manner in which the employer is obliged to present the reasons of the termination of the employment contract without notice.

The employee was informed about selected and specified reasons of the contract’s termination during the meeting, at the same time the employer presented him the declaration on terminating the employment contract. In the declaration the employer did not determine specific causes which led him to dismissal of the employee.

Dismissed employee in his statement of claim which he brought into court demanded compensation for unlawful employment contract termination – contrary to the provisions of article 30 § 4 of the Labour Code. Nevertheless the employer did not violate the rules, as the reasons of the employment contract’s termination can be specified in any other way, even orally.
