    Summary

    A lawyer informed the municipality that an employee of the municipality had hired the lawyer as his legal representative in regards to the matter, among other things, that the municipality had suspended the employee from his job. According to the Social Welfare Board, the employed had no right to hire a legal representative in this particular context. Because of this, the municipality decided to correspond only with the employed. The Parliamentary Ombudsmen states that matters of employment such as the relevant matter may include many questions of a varying character and, if the employer is an authority, the circumstances should be processed pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act. The legal matter now in question, were the rule of law holds particular ground, should, according to the Parliamentary Ombudsmen’s understanding, be considered a case in compliance to the Administrative Procedure Act. Pursuant to section 9 of the Administrative Procedure Act the regulation on the right to hire a legal representative was so forth applicable. The Parliamentary Ombudsmen holds that if a legal representative exists, it is, primarily, the legal representative that the municipality shall contact. The correspondence in the case should therefore go through the legal representative. The Parliamentary Ombudsmen directs criticism towards the Social Welfare Board for not corresponding with the legal representative.
