Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Which country's laws govern your contract of employment?
I don't think any do - my contract is with the United Nations. I seem to remember seeing something about UK law - but I think the UN are 'sovereign'
Hmm, determining your employment status and country of jurisdiction is a rather complex matter and not going to be part of this query so all I can advise you is that my response will be based on UK law, whether it applies to you or not
so is that ok for you?
I think that I'll need advice to be a bit specific. UN Staff do not have to answer to civil suits, so I would need someone who can advise me on how to persuade my UN organisation to waive that privilege in this case.
I think this is rather a specialist international law type of question - the simple definition of defamation and remedies I can understand.
Thanks for your time anyway.
ok I am afraid this may not be the best place for such a query in that case you are best advised to seek legal advice in person from a solicitor who can advise on this specific matter. I will process a refund anyway so this will not cost you anything today
Many thanks Ben. Have a good afternoon.
And you, all the best
