ECHR: church law dismissal doesn’t fall under employment litigation

The Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) passed a decision recently in a case related to #Hungary. According to the ECHR, Mr Nagy, a pastor dismissed by the Reformed Church of Hungary, may enforce his claims neither under employment law, nor under the civil law as his appointment fell under the law of the church. Therefore Art. 6 of the European Convention of Human Rights (right to a fair trial) was not violated.

The case of Bărbulescu v. Romania before the European Court of Human Rights – concerned the decision of a private company to dismiss an employee after monitoring his electronic communications and accessing their contents, and the alleged failure of the domestic courts to protect his right to respect for his private life and correspondence – the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights held, that there had been a violation of Article 8 (right to respect for private and family life, the home and correspondence) of the European Convention on Human Rights.The Court concluded that the national authorities had not adequately protected Mr Bărbulescu’s right to respect for his private life and correspondence. They had consequently failed to strike a fair balance between the interests at stake.
