Can it be considered a wrongful dismissal when the worker of the company was self – employed?
Zafo Law had to study a Labour Law case in which the main question was to know if self-employment collaboration can be submitted to the same rules than the ones regulating the Labour Law contracts under Spanish Law. This legal question is not so usual in Court and there is not any consolidated case law about it, we were then pleased that Zafo Law would be in charge of such an innovated case.
Foundation related to Denmark, asking Zafo Law S.L.P. for assistance and advice regarding the termination of an agency agreement and claim for a dismissal, ending into an agreement.
Danish Bankruptcy in Spain
Zafo Law is assisting one of the biggest Danish law firms executing real estate property in Mallorca as an integrated part of an ongoing bankruptcy proceeding in Denmark. We predict the outcome will be of utmost interest for any Scandinavian lawyer acting as an executor in Scandinavian bankruptcy proceedings containing Spanish real estate due to a special Spanish process, whereby a civil criminal proceeding can be initiated facilitating other more effectfull legal enforcement tools.
