Advising in relation to effecting redundancy of the staff
Vasil Kisil & Partners acted as legal advisor to a foreign owner of a major production facility in Donetsk in relation to effecting redundancy of its staff. Given the lack of Ukrainian government’s effective control of the territory where the production facility is located, continued fighting in the Donetsk region, captured of the production facility by insurgents, the client needed the legal advice on the possible ways of termination of the facility’s employees, action plan and eventual implementation.
Vasil Kisil & Partners team acted as legal advisor, advising on termination options and risks, drafting and supporting the successful implementation of action plan, including on-the-ground. The project involved dismissal of more than 100 of the facility’s employees located throughout Ukraine, Russian Federation and other countries that fled as a result of the crisis or remained in Donetsk.
