The Spanish judiciary considered the dismissal of an accounting at a hotel in the Canary Islands for "technical reasons" to be replaced by an information program, "arbitrary".
The labor court in Las Palmas said that "the termination of the contract of an employee of an international tourism company is arbitrary ... after being fired after an employee worked for 13 years to be replaced by an information program."
"Automation through the use of bots or robots under the pretext of cutting costs only reduces the right to work, to increase the freedom of the company," the judge said.
The judge ruled that the hotel should "re-employ the worker in the five days following the verdict" or raise her compensation to more than 28,000 euros.
