This was told to the Charter-97 website by the chairman of the Belarusian Trade Union of Radio Electronic Industry (REP) Henadz Fiadynich.

“So far, we do not want to name the employee who is about to be subjected to Lukashenka’s Decree No. 9. In this case, there is a possibility of legal dismissal and all can end well. I can only add that this woman is engaged in the development of projects for the company,” says the REP chairman.

He also added that they are negotiating with the company management to resolve the matter without going to court.

“After the completion of a project, she found another job and wanted to leave, and it was a long time ago. But the notorious decree was used to reject her resignation. The situation should become clearer in a week or two. If we cannot find common ground, we will have to appeal to the court for illegal dismissal,” concluded Henadz Fiadynich.

Decree No. 9 of December 7, 2012 was the result of Lukashenka’s visit to several companies.

The decree requires all employees of wood processing industry to be transferred to the contract form of employment, and the early termination of contracts during the implementation of investment projects by the employee shall be permitted only with the consent of the employer.
