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.
