The article provides for an analysis of the legal nature of Article 30 of the Charter of Fundamental
Rights of the European Union, which declares "the right to protection against unjustified
dismissal". In the focus of attention is the question, whether this right constitutes a human or a
fundamental right or it is a right without the status of being fundamental or alternatively only
a basic principle.
The considerations are based on the legal theory of human rights and particularly social rights,
as well as on the understanding of this right in the various international treaties and the constitutional
traditions of the Member States. Furthermore, the article addresses the question of
implementation of Article 30 in the national laws, scrutinizes the interpretation of Art. 51 Abs
1 of the Charter and highlights the deficiencies and possibilities. Also the image of this right
mirrored in the European Union's law and the case law of the Court of Justice of the European
Union is examined.
