Employment Termination from the Point of View of Good Morals (pp. 31-45, in English, PDF, 733 kB)

Abstract: The present paper deals with the issue of invalidity of employment termination, where the employment is terminated on the basis of a legal act, and where the non-compliance with good morals applies. Although there are formally met the requirements for valid termination of employment, the circumstances involving the termination of employment are those which are contrary to the basic rules of decency or morality (contra bonos mores). There are cases when the employers in order to “get rid of” an inconvenient employee create fictitious organizational changes and dismiss this employee because of his redundancy, or create a situation of a gross professional misconduct.

Key Words: Labour Law; Employment Termination; Invalidity of the Legal Act; Good Morals (contra bonos mores); Labour Code; Supreme Court of the Slovak Republic; the Slovak Republic.

The Slovak Presidency in the United Nations Security Council (pp. 75-104, in Slovak, PDF, 859 kB)

Abstract: The United Nations Security Council (hereinafter as the “UN Security Council”) has been the central body of the system of collective security which is a philosophical counterpart of the system of balance of power. In comparison with the Council of the League of Nations we can see various differences, especially in a way that the UN Security Council can adopt measures legally binding for every state of the world. This body has not just unprecedented competencies, but what is more vital is that it has various sanctions to its disposal by which it can enforce the international law. The UN Security Council is a collective body which has both permanent and elected members. Being a member of it is a great prestige, but also a great responsibility. The Slovak Republic has been an elected member of it only once in its short history, however, it was praised for the role it played during the two year’s term. The aim of this study is to introduce the most important moments of the Slovak presidency to which, unfortunately, smaller attention is being paid than it deserves.

Key Words: The United Nations Security Council; Resolutions; Sanctions; Reform of the Security Sector; International Law; the Slovak Republic.

Internal Personnel Audit (pp. 128-135, in English, PDF, 629 kB)

Abstract: Even in the 20th Century a big shift did not occur in the concept of the personnel audit. The Society for Human Resource Management states the following: “The personnel audit is the process of evaluating programs and services for human resources for determining the efficacy or effectiveness.” The usage of the word “assessment” is not qualified and can mislead the manager of human resources to the fact that the audit is only considered as a kind of assessment. Here arises a problem of the misleading definition that does not provide an accurate context for auditing and also does not recognize the different types of audits. The following scientific article tries to outline the internal personnel audit, the different types of internal personnel audit as well as the aims of the internal personnel audit. The presented paper was created within the project VEGA 1/0662/15.

Key Words: Personnel Audit; Internal Personnel Audit; Types of Internal Personnel Audit; Aims of Internal Personnel Audit.

Multiculturalism in Internal Communication – Communication Tools (pp. 136-146, in Slovak, PDF, 658 kB)

Abstract: One of the fundamental assumptions for a company to work well is a good communication. Despite a good system of information exchange, problems in human relations and misunderstandings are often caused by communication problems such as communication noise or communication barriers. It is not uncommon that company managers cannot communicate well with their employees. This is shown on the external communication as well as on the communication with company owners. With regard to the deepening globalization and internationalization efforts, it is essential to inform managers as well as their employees about the new information forms, channels, tools, techniques, or technologies needed for an effective and well working communication.

Key Words: Globalization and Internationalization; Internal Communication; Traditional Communication Tools; Modern Communication Tools; Methods of Improving Internal Communication; Information Security.
