When confidence is lost...labour relations if an employee is caught causing wilful damage to the employer

Compliance practice is gradually appearing in Russia. Zero tolerance of corporate corruption is becoming a key principle of corporate culture and the foundation for effective anti-fraud schemes. Employees do not currently perceive corporate investigations as critical to business, but rather as a method to prevent dishonesty among employees. However in Russia companies face a complicated situation after an investigation has been completed: notwithstanding direct evidence of the dishonest actions of an employee, in practice it is very difficult to fire him/her or to obtain compensation for the damage to the company. Dismissal by mutual agreement of the parties is unacceptable for the company in terms of ideology, while the Russian Labour Code provides no other alternative.

Or is there an alternative?!

This issue will be the centre of the discussion to be held as part of the seminar “When confidence is lost... labour relations if an employee is caught causing wilful damage to the employer”.
