Coach Kim suddenly received favorable judgments in the controversy with DragonX that took place earlier this year.
In the middle of the LCK Spring 2022 group stage, the DragonX side suddenly made a move to fire Coach Kim after only half a season of sticking, making the community surprised. Sharing about the cause of the incident, DRX management confirmed that Coach Kim did not fulfill his responsibilities and role, often letting personal problems affect his work.
However, Coach Kim’s side did not agree with this explanation, and it was not less than 1 time confirmed that the drama between him and DRX still contains many hidden corners that have not been revealed.
The incident seemed to have been silent for a long time, but recently, when the Korean financial government – specifically the Seoul Regional Labor Committee intervened, the DRX side was in danger. the chance to be adjudged to lose in this case. In more detail, the aforementioned agency has ruled that DRX’s dismissal of Coach Kim is completely wrong and violates labor law.
This committee also made a request to DragonX to restore Coach Kim’s job immediately, and pay the coach’s salary in full during the time he was fired.
Of course, Coach Kim’s return to DragonX, even if it happens, is probably just a procedural story, because both sides can no longer find a common voice. However, if Coach Kim requires DRX to fulfill his contractual obligations, then this captain can absolutely do nothing and still receive a salary if he returns to the team until his contract with DRX expires.
The fact that DRX was ruled by the Seoul Regional Labor Commission may be the result of this team not properly following the contract liquidation process, but more specifically, it may be that DRX did not have a good enough reason. it is worth proceeding to fire Coach Kim, or not pay adequate compensation as committed.
“We completely agree with the decision of the Labor Commission, based on both reason and reason. Hopefully, this ruling will create a premise to protect the rights and interests of people like Coach Kim who are active in the field of e-sports training, which has received little attention in the past.” – Coach Kim’s lawyer spoke.
