Death of Employee and His Financial Claims


Unless stipulated otherwise by a special regulation, financial claims of an employee shall not cease with his/her death. Claims to wages from an employment relationship shall be progressively conferred directly upon the spouse, children and parents of the employee, if living with the employee at the time of death in a common household, and this to the sum of fourfold the employee‟s average monthly earnings. If there are no such persons, such claims shall become a subject of inheritance. 

Financial claims of an employer shall cease upon the death of the employee, excepting such claims which were legally adjudged, or which the employee prior to his/her death acknowledged in writing both as regards the reason and amounts, and claims to compensation for damages caused deliberately or by loss of articles entrusted to the employee in a written confirmation.
