Judicial Defense against a Claim of Employee Terminated after a Probation Period

The Presnensky District Court of Moscow upheld the termination of an employee and dismissed his claims in full. In substantiation of his claims, the employee who had been terminated after a probation period referred to his being unaware of job functions and to the lack of a job instruction. Under the circumstances, the task of the defense was to prove the lawfulness of the employer's conclusion that the employee had failed to successfully pass the probation period, for which purpose the defense had to determine the scope of actual job functions during the probation period and to show that the claimant had failed to perform them properly. AGP attorney Maria Abramova acted as defense attorney.
