Industrial Relations: RFE/RL Job Contracts under Criticism

Prague Daily Monitor, via Kim Andrew Elliot – ČTK, 5 June 2012

Prague, June 4 (CTK) – The Czech Helsinki Committee (CHV) criticised Monday the procedure by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) that, it says, gives job seekers employment contracts with a disadvantageous clause, and Czech courts do not effectively protect the affected employees.

The CHV told CTK Monday that two former employees – Snjezana Pelivan of Croatia and Anna Karapetyan of Armenia have turned to it.


More there, with updates from June 13 and June 15 on Kim Elliot’s website.

Deutsche Welle‘s Chinese department had some industrial-relations issues of its own in recent years.

The cases in Prague (not from RFE/RL‘s Chinese, but their Croatian and Armenian departments, apparenty) are reportedly being dealt with by the Czech Supreme Court.

According to a report by the Croatian Times, Snjezana Pelivan , formerly employed by RFE/RL’s Croatian service, is taking her case to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

I’ll try to get updates about both the RFE/RL, and the cases of Wang Fengbo and Zhu Hong (formerly Deutsche Welle) this or next week.
