Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
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
