Singe Member Court of First Instance of Athens – Case Number 490/2014

Οverdue payment compensation. When the claim for deposit overdue payment compensations is abusive. Αbusive is the exersice of the right when there is weakening of the right due to long inaction. There is also abusive exersice of the right, when the employee, in order to receive his salary from the late employer (without certainly working), remains with his will without a job for a long time and avoids unjustifiably and maliciously to take care of finding a new job. Τhe fact and only that the employee during the time of his late employer worked for a certain amount of time in another employer does not exclude the abusive exercise of the claim for late payment wages in the next period.Rejects the action.
