Employee Opinions Do Not Harm Company Interests

18 September 2008

The Spanish Supreme Court has ruled on a case in which an employee of a company published opinions relating to the death of various colleagues criticizing company representatives.

Said company determined this to be a serious labor offence which led to the employee’s dismissal. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the employee citing the right to free speech and declared the dismissal null and void.

The Court also ruled that all of the reasons which led the employee to form these opinions were true and therefore there was no call for a sanction.

The conclusion is that nothing can impede an employee from criticizing their company representatives.
