Resolution of disputes under employment contracts for sports activities
A sports lawyer will help you frame the terms of the contract so that the sportsman or coach is protected in the event of injury. For example, an employment contract with an athlete who has lost the ability to work due to injury, work injury, or occupational disease, received during training sessions, training camps, sports competitions, cannot be terminated at the initiative of the club until the restoration of working capacity or the establishment of disability and retirement, as well as full payment of the insurance amount. When preparing an employment contract with an athlete, a sports lawyer will help develop the conditions for monetary compensation, conditions for training events, the procedure for performing at competitions, the responsibility of the sports organization to the athlete, provisions on transfer to another club, etc.
Accompaniment of the transfer of coaches and athletes from one club to another
The Civil Code of the Russian Federation does not distinguish a special type of transfer agreement on the transfer of athletes or coaches from one club to another, however, such an agreement will have legal force, in accordance with the principle of freedom of contract. At the stage of drawing up such an agreement, a sports lawyer will help determine the essential conditions:
- the possibility and conditions of transfer to specific clubs.
- the amount of compensation for the transfer of the athlete.
- the obligation of the club from which the athlete leaves to fire him in the order of transfer to
By complying with the terms of various regulations, such as the Regulations of the Russian Football Union, a sports lawyer can help formulate favorable terms of an agreement on counter monetary compensation or on the oncoming transfer of athletes between clubs. Also, our sports lawyer assists in specific rare disputes, such as the “rent” of an athlete (temporary performance in another club), as well as the transfer of “rights to an athlete” to the club.
