Cobalt Successful for Empower in Dispute

Cobalt Successful for Empower in Dispute


Cobalt has successfully represented the company Empower, the energy and telecommunications infrastructure construction company, in court.

According to Cobalt, the firm represented Empower "in relation to a former employee’s claim for compensation for an occupational disease. After assessing the evidence, the courts unanimously found that the work process of Empower has complied with legal requirements and [that] occupational health requirements had not been breached, [so] the employer could not be held liable for the emergence of the occupational disease. The courts rejected the employee’s action in full and also ordered the employee to pay some of Empower’s legal expenses. The Supreme Court refused to accept the employee’s appeal in cassation for processing."

Cobalt Senior Associate Merle Veeroos represented Empower in the matter.
