The dismissal of the geologist Hans Thybo has led to a feeling of insecurity among researchers at the University of Copenhagen. Because if it is so easy to get rid of an unwanted employee, then they could be next in line.
The renowned geology professor Hans Thybo was fired in November 2016 from the University of Copenhagen. One year later, the two sides settled in a court of arbitration. Now Thybo presents his version of the most controversial personnel case in recent years. University management has not wished to comment on this story.
One year after the University of Copenhagen dismissed Professor Hans Thybo, the case is now closed after arbitration has assessed that UCPH fired Hans Thybo in violation of labour agreements.
While it may make sense for Thybo’s boss to fire him, UCPH as a whole has been damaged by the case. Professors calls for job security, even for the scientists who are difficult
Sacked Professor Hans Thybo rejected a settlement proposal from UCPH and is ready to go to court to get his job back after doubts concerning the University's grounds for dismissal. New documents show that Thybo unsuccessfully tried to get Rector to declare that there were no secret grounds for dismissal
