Purpose of the decision

Representation of the Employer in a dispute opposing it to one of its employees, dismissed for real and serious cause.

By judgment rendered on January 24, 2017, the Labor Court decided that the employee’s dismissal was not based on a real and serious cause. It thus ordered the Employer to pay the said employee the sums of :

The company appealed the decision.

Declared that the employee’s dismissal was based on a real and serious cause;
Dismissed the employee’s claims for damages for wrongful dismissal, for damages for discriminatory dismissal, for damages for moral prejudice and for the application of article 700 of the Code of Civil Procedure;
Confirmed the judgment for the remainder.

And adding:

Dismissed the employee’s claim for damages following the company’s appeal;
Dismissed the employee’s claim under Article 700 of the Code of Civil Procedure for the appeal proceedings;
Dismissed the company’s claim under Article 700 of the Code of Civil Procedure;
Ordered the employee to pay all costs of the trial and appeal proceedings.

This decision is final.
