Notice of Termination by Employer in case of Violation by Employee

On 15 and 22 May 2019, an article by PRIMUS DERLING partner Sintija Radionova and attorney at law Dace Driče was published in iTiesības (in two parts), which article examines whether an employee who has committed violation may be dismissed in all cases. What are the arrangements for dismissing an employee for a violation and what are the consequences of dismissing an employee without justification?

In practice, it is often the case that an employer wants to dismiss an employee because the employee has committed a serious violation and the employer no longer wants to continue their employment relationship. Although at first glance it seems that the situation is quite simple and clear, in practice there are different issues to face. Likewise, case law shows new trends from time to time. Thus, in this article, we will consider whether an employee who has committed a violation can be dismissed in all cases, how to dismiss the employee, and what the consequences may be if the employee is dismissed without justification.
