Alexa Kavasto

Ph.D. Candidate

I work as a PhD researcher at the Faculty of Law, University of Lapland. In my dissertation, I examine the overall assessment used in considering a sufficient ground for dismissal. The overall assessment leaves a great responsibility to the employer, as there is no objectively observable threshold for dismissal. Instead, in different dismissal situations the emphasis of the overall assessment is different. The research will help employers, employees and judges to steer our legal culture in the right direction by providing analyzed and aggregated information on the content of the overall assessment and its practical application. In addition, I work as a teacher at the University of Lapland in the field of labor law.
