Labor disputes in our country are by right a very common practice that requires a complex legal analysis of the causes and consequences of the conflict. Even taking into account the fact that Ukraine actively uses the democratic values of modern times in its social life, many employers still consider employees as servants or slaves. At the same time, this is often encouraged by employees themselves, forgetting that any employer must comply with the requirements of the Labor Code, and not go beyond them.
The most common causes of labor disputes include salary delays and illegal dismissals of employees.
However, employers are much more likely to violate current legislation. The only problem is that the employees themselves are not always able to recognize such a violation due to the lack of any knowledge in this area of law.
By consulting a professional lawyer in the field of labor law in time, you will be able to ensure that you understand the situation of the labor dispute as a whole, Orient yourself in the violations of the employer, and choose the most effective strategy for protecting your interests, and preventing violations in the future.
As the practice of our company shows, the majority of cases related to Labor Law, in which a competent lawyer participates, end exclusively in favor of the injured party, the employee. Of course, you can always win a wrongful termination lawsuit, and get a job back but no one can guarantee you the trust of a boss whose illegal actions toward you were stopped. But you need to sue even if you do not plan to continue working in a company where the rights of an employee do not mean anything.
A positive court decision in such a case means that the company is obliged to pay the employee money for the time that he was absent due to violation of his rights (illegal dismissal), the ability to get finance for unused vacation days, and compensation for moral damage. All this is provided at the legislative level. Victory in such a dispute is a great chance not only to get money but also moral relief for the restored justice.
Various errors at dismissal, even if it was carried out in the framework of the law, can become a very real reason to win a court case. Such errors may include incorrect dates, signatures, lack of necessary documentation, etc. A lawyer with extensive practical experience in resolving labor disputes at Kasyanenko & Partners Law Company can use all this correctly and turn the situation in favor of his client.
