In addition to money, the company owes a balance in Bitcoin to a customer support coordinator who was laid off a year ago
Atlas Quantum was ordered by the Regional Labor Court of the 2nd Region (TRt – 2) to pay a debt of R$ 100,000 to a former employee who has not yet received the 2019 salary.
Therefore, according to the court decision, the former Atlas Quantum customer support coordinator should receive the termination sum presented in the conviction on a voluntary basis.
However, in addition to money, the former employee of the platform claims that he has a fraction of Bitcoin trapped in the business. However, the court did not grant the claim relating to the balance in kryptomoedas, as he claimed moral damages in relation to the amount retained in Atlas Quantum.
Former official sues Atlas Quantum
A labor lawsuit against Atlas Quantum ordered the company to voluntarily pay R$100,000 to a former employee who was fired in December 2019.
Thus, without receiving a salary, holiday and severance pay, the former Atlas Quantum customer support coordinator decided to seek justice to settle the labor debt.
Initially, the amount of the lawsuit was indicated as R$ 159,278.31 when considering the request for moral compensation requested by the plaintiff. But, with the rejection of this request, the amount of the labor claim was indicated as R$ 100,000 by the Justice.
“Narraws that he did not receive the salary of nov/19, severance pay, pending holiday, food and meal vouchers.”
A labor lawsuit against Atlas Quantum cites that the company has a labor debt of R$100,000 with the former customer support coordinator who was fired on December 16, 2019.
Thus, the former employee of the arbitration platform in Bitcoin claims that he did not receive the salary for the month of November of that year, in addition to other severance payments.
Meanwhile, in addition to not receiving the money owed by the company, the former employee also had a fraction of Bitcoin blocked by Atlas Quantum, as well as thousands of investors in the platform who continue with delayed withdrawals.
The value in Bitcoin that the former customer support coordinator has retained on the platform is the result of bonuses offered by the company in cryptomoedas.
According to the court case, the Bitcoin fraction of 0.44077140 (BTC) is withheld from the arbitration platform. The former Atlas Quantum employee was unable to withdraw his cryptomorphs about a year ago and has asked for moral compensation.
With the rejection of this request, Atlas Quantum will have to pay only R$ 100,000, which corresponds to the amount of labour the former employee is entitled to.
While Bitcoin trapped in the platform, the court did not rule on the return of the amount by the company. As the request for return in cryptomoedas did not provide evidence of the blockade, the balance in Bitcoin was not included in the decision on the voluntary payment of the labour debt by Atlas Quantum.
“There is no evidence in the file of the alleged blockade or unavailability of these amounts”.
