The case concerned a store security guard who was summarily dismissed due to repeated disobedience. The disobedience consisted of not reporting his attendance at work and not following the rules of the camera surveillance rooms in the stores where he worked. The district court found that the circumstances did not constitute legal grounds for a summary dismissal, but enough grounds for a dismissal with notice. The district court awarded the employee SEK 30,000 in general damages and an amount corresponding to two months’ salary in economic damages. The employee was obligated to pay two out of three parts of the employer’s legal fees. The employee appealed the case to the Labour Court. The Labour Court agreed with the district court’s ruling regarding the wrongful summary dismissal and awarded the employee SEK 50,000 in general damages, but did not change the awarded economic damage. Furthermore, the employee was obligated to pay half of the employer’s legal costs.
