Revoking an employment contract
Both a permanent or a short term employment contract may come to an end immediately, without any period of notice, if the employment contract is revoked.
The employer can revoke a contract if the employee has seriously neglected or breached those duties which have been specified in the employment contract or by law, examples of this being by endangering other people or by stealing the property of the employer. Similarly, the employee can revoke an employment contract if employers seriously breach their obligations.
The right of revoking a contract will expire if the employment contract has not been revoked within 14 days from the date when grounds for revoking the contract had become evident.
In addition, an employment contract can be regarded as being revoked, if the employee is absent from work for one week (seven days) without informing the employer. Similarly, if employers are absent from the workplace for one week (seven days) without giving a proper reason for their absence during that time, the employee can regard the employment contract as being revoked. Should the employees have found it impossible to inform the employer of such absence, then the revocation of the employment contract will be cancelled.
The period of notice need not be observed in a situation where an employment contract is to be revoked.
