An employee who worked in a management position was temporary laid off. Borgarting Court of Appeal however, found that the redundancy was a concealed termination of the employment contract. The court found that the employer had not sufficiently proven that the company’s income had dropped and that its economic position was in a bad state. In this regard, the Court pointed to the fact that the company could not document its alleged worries. Employers should note that temporary redundancy must be based in a situation of economic decline that can be documented, and that the company believes the situation is only temporary.
