(Appeal number 294/2008): In this case, the company failed to make prompt payments of its employee's salaries due to its insolvency situation. These delays in payment were recurring, persistent over time and quantitatively significant.

Following established case law, the SC held that economic difficulties do not constitute a reason to alter the consequences of a duly evidenced lack of payment. Therefore, the employee is entitled to request the termination of the employment contract and claim for compensation for unfair dismissal, which amounts to 45 days salary per year of employment with a maximum limit of 42 months.
