Matter could go to Supreme Court for final ruling. The Court of Appeal has ruled that five audiovisual translators working for BTI Studios Finland, the dubbing and subtitling multinational, will be compensated for unjustified job termination. The sums to be paid range from €22 000 to €49 000 and correspond to eight to 12 months’ salary. The court’s decision, which was unanimous, was made 18 January. The translators previously worked for the commercial broadcaster MTV and were transferred to BTI when the broadcaster outsourced its translation services. Compensation was awarded to the translators corresponding to several months pay for non-material damages. BTI was also ordered to pay court costs of €41 000. The matter may now go to the Supreme Court if BTI decides to appeal the ruling, which it will have do by 20 March. Earlier, the District Court had ruled against the non-payment of termination pay but had endorsed the redundancies. The UJF had granted the translators the right to use the legal insurance provided by the union.
