One-time is enough

The Supreme Court in the verdict of 5 th of July 2017, in the case no. II PK 202/16 has ruled that a one-time absence may be regarded as a serious breach of basic employee duties in a task-working time.

However, as the Supreme Court indicated, not every absence of an worker employed in a task-working time is affecting interests of the employer. The Supreme Court pointed out that if a worker breached the basic employee duties in a task-working time, it is necessary to demonstrate the unlawfulness of the act, the fault and, in particular, the breach or affecting the interests of the employer.
