Experts of ALRUD Labour Practice provided comprehensive support to a multinational mobile technologies leader in a complicated project involving an employee being terminated due to redundancy in one of Russia’s regions. The employee tried to delay his dismissal as long as possible and repeatedly exploited his rights. He filed for sick leave on numerous occasions, became a member of the election commission with a decisive vote, avoided correspondence, and got the Prosecutor’s Office to represent his interests. Following a seven-month downsizing procedure, the employee was terminated, which he appealed in court with a lawsuit filed by the Prosecutor’s Office. Given his status as a member of the election commission, the employee claimed in court that he was terminated due to discrimination and political reasons.
The ALRUD team successfully defended the Company’s interests in court, which confirmed the legality and correctness of the staff reduction.
The ALRUD team that worked on the case under the guidance of ALRUD Partner and Head of the Labour and Employment practice Irina Anyukhina included ALRUD Of Counsel Anastasia Petrova, Senior Associate Margarita Egiazarova, and Associate Ekaterina Bronitsyna.
