The decision to fire an employee can be communicated via email, if the two parts normally use this form of communication.
Jobs The Labor Code in Romania
The court’s decision comes after a former Romanian employee sued his employer, challenging the fact that he had been fired through an email.
The man claimed that the employer failed to respect the legal provision which requires that the dismissal should be submitted in writing.
The Labor Code provides that the decision to dismiss an employee must be notified in writing and must contain the reasons for dismissal, the length of notice, criteria for determining the order of priority (only for collective layoffs), the list of jobs available within the unit.
The judges have now decided that the decision can also be sent via email, if the two parts normally use this technology to communicate. ■
