Andrew Smith has written an article entitled “Recent jurisprudence on ‘just cause’ contract termination” for World Sports Advocate.
In this article Andrew considers several recent decisions of the Court of Arbitration for Sport concerning unilateral terminations of contracts, with a particular focus on the following issues: What is regarded as a ‘termination’ of the employment contract?; What constitutes ‘just cause’ for a unilateral termination?; What are the principles governing the assessment of compensation for a unilateral termination without just cause?; How does joint liability operate in this context?; and What are the principles governing the imposition of sporting sanctions?
