The associates of the Employment practice of KIAP represented on a pro bono basis the interests of the largest public organization in Russia and it’s subsidiary in disputes with the General Director and former employees who previously held senior positions.

The subject of several disputes comprised of the unreasonable demands of former employees for rewording the dismissal, reinstatement, recovery of average earnings for a period of enforced absence and compensation for moral injury.

Despite the arguments of the claimants, KIAP lawyers managed to prove that all employment contracts with the employees were terminated in the manner established by labor legislation, and the Principal’s management acted in good faith, and therefore the justifications for reinstatement, rewording the dismissal and recovering average earnings and compensations were recognized as missing.

The Principal's interests in this project were represented by an associate Evgeny Metla.
