Dr. Elisabeth Vanas-Metzler und Mag. Tobias Birsak, ILO Newsletter vom 26. Mai 2016

The Supreme Court recently considered several formal objections under the New York Convention, as well as several alleged grounds for refusal. The court adopted a rather strict approach with regard to the authentication requirement under the convention, while reiterating that the convention should generally be interpreted in favour of the recognition and enforcement of foreign awards.

Supreme Court on pink ribbons
Mag. Jakob Widner, ILO Newsletter vom 27. April 2016



The Supreme Court recently sought to set the standard for an employer´s right to introduce or enforce a dress code. Basing its decision on the privacy rights under the Civil Code and the European Convention on Human Rights, the court clarified that an employee´s outer appearance is his or her private affair, and that the test to be applied as to where this privacy ends is trustworthiness. Although clear-cut in theory, the guidance leaves considerable leeway for interpretation.

Rescue mergers
Dr. Alexander Isola, ILO Newsletter vom 22. April 2016


A rescue merger may be an effective instrument for the financial restructuring of an undertaking and for securing its survival. However, they involve numerous legal constraints and risks which could lead to a serious encroachment on the legal positions of shareholders, creditors and holders of special rights. It is imperative to observe these constraints and risks strictly in order to avoid any risk of inequality in the treatment of the parties to a rescue merger.

Capital maintenance rules and voidance of third-party security
Mag. Stephan Schmalzl, ILO Newsletter vom 11. März 2016

The Supreme Court recently dismissed a bank´s claim for enforcement of a third-party mortgage initially given to secure loans granted to two corporate entities. The Supreme Court, irrespective of fierce (and mostly negative) discussions in legal literature, failed to question the nullity of the underlying loan further and thereby indirectly confirmed its previous decision on the ´overall planning´ criterion.
