Spanish court admits emails from internal investigation as evidence

A judicial decision, issued by the employment division of the Spanish Supreme Court, has confirmed the admissibility as evidence, to justify a dismissal, of the emails of the dismissed employee obtained in the course of an internal investigation.

This decision has its origin in a claim for unfair dismissal filed by an employee of a Spanish company which had been dismissed by the company for committing very serious infringements of the Spanish Workers’ Statute – it was proven that the dismissed employee had accepted a bribe from one of the company’s suppliers.
