Mladen Stoev v Minyor Pernik

On 13 May 2011, the Pernik District Court decided to annul the Order issued by the Pernik County Court in the labor dispute between the player, Mladen Stoev, and the club, PFC Minyor Pernik, and to refer the case back to first instance for pronunciation on the merits of the dispute between the said parties.

It was unbelievable that the Pernik County Court decided earlier that the contract entered into between the parties in 2010 was not an employment contract, and that the parties should litigate at the BFU Arbitration Court, which is manifestly not competent to decide upon employment-related disputes, as provided for in Art. 360.1 of the Labor Code in connection with Art. 19.1 of the Code of Civil Proceedings.

Mladen Stoev is represented by adv. Vessela Petrova-Sacheva and Georgi Gradev.
