The right to criticism and satire in the workplace

The right to criticism and satire in the workplace

Five employees have been dismissed for cause, because at the workplaces, they represented a sort of play where the managing director was hanged and at the same time, he left (in the “play”), a will.

The Court of Appeal, changed the decision of the first instance Court, based on the fact that it was a legal satire under the principle of freedom of speech.

The Supreme Court overturned the decision and ruled that the freedom of speech and right of satire should be balanced with the protection of human dignity.

In particular, the right of critique has been violated because the employees have given a falsely represented to the office of the managing director to portray him under aspects censurable and moral discreditable to cause on the people of the company, indignation and scorn.
