Hire & Fire employment law podcast – Managerial position

Insights|May 30, 2024

In this episode of Hire & Fire, Roschier’s associates William Karo Persson and Sofia Andersson discuss the Swedish Labor Court’s judgement AD 2023 no. 24, which concerns an employee who owned half of the company’s shares and had authority to act as company signatory when her employment was terminated.

The central question in the judgement was whether the employee was covered by the exception in the Swedish Employment Protection Act for employees in managerial positions, and William and Sofia discuss, inter alia, what the term “managerial position” means and what bearing the employee’s notice period and shareholding have on the assessment of whether the exception is applicable.
