Morales & Besa advises Constructora Ingevec S.A. in labor trial – self dismissal of administration manager

January 1, 2015

Morales & Besa successfully defended Constructora Ingevec S.A., obtaining favorable rulings in the 1st Labour Court of Santiago and in the Court of Appeals of Santiago, both affirming that our client had not executed any action that allowed the claimant to self-terminate his work contract.   This trial was important, not only for the amount in dispute, but also, because an unfavourable ruling could set a very damaging precedent to the company, which is, that the working conditions at the company granted employees the right to self-terminate their employment and, thus, collect additional severance payment. The case was for an amount of approximately US$ 37,149.

The M&B team was led by senior associate Rodrigo Sanhueza T.
