"The case law on minor offences in German Labour Courts"
Personalführung, October 2009
Paul Melot de Beauregard is quoted in an article concerning the case law on minor offences in German Labour Courts. In the recently highlighted Emmely-Case a cashier was dismissed without notice, after 31 years of service, because she was accused of cashing in two returned empty bottle coupons with a total value of € 1.30, which she had found in the store. According to this highly controversial case law he recommends employers first to give a written warning before dismissing an employee.
