ArmInfo. No employee should be fired without any reason, Gevorg Petrosyan, a MP of the National Assembly from the Prosperous Armenia faction, said this at a meeting of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia on November 12, presenting amendments to the Law on Joint-Stock Companies to be included in the big parliamentary agenda.
According to the MP, the current law establishes that the meeting of shareholders has the right at any time to terminate the powers of the executive director of the joint-stock company. Now, taking into account the reformed Constitution of the Republic of Armenia prohibiting dismissal without appropriate grounds, it is proposed to introduce into the law a provision according to which the executive director of the joint-stock company can be dismissed in the manner prescribed by law.
Meanwhile, the Chairperson of the Permanent Parliamentary Commission on Health and Social Affairs, Heriknaz Tigranyan, presenting the justification for the negative conclusion, indicated that this decision was due to the case-law of the Court of Cassation and the decision of the Constitutional Court, according to which the executive body of the joint-stock companies does not have the status inherent in the employer-employee relationship.
To note, the bill by the ratio of 36 votes in "favor" and 61 "against" was not included in the big agenda of the parliament.
