A senior employee of an multinational corporation outsourced work to a third party firm controlled by her related party. This senior employee was terminated by immediate notice without compensation. The former employee initiated a local labor arbitration demanding a high amount of compensation.
The “first call” resulted in preparation of evidence on a tight schedule. Meetings with relevant employees, managers and contractors were organized to compile evidence related to the terminated employee’s misconduct and self-dealing; prepare sworn affidavits by key witnesses and indirect evidence was collected to strengthen the defense by illustrating the abnormality of the outsourcing of the work by the terminated employee.
The arbitration panel rejected the former employee’s claims based on the strong evidence and defense brief. No compensation for the terminated employee was awarded. We also reviewed and updated all relevant Company employment agreements, policies and practices and Company Work Manual to insure labor and corruption compliance.
