Cho Song-hwa was notified of the termination of the contract on the grounds of leaving the team without permission, and he filed a lawsuit against the club, but lost in the first trial. Cho Song-hwa, who played for IBK Industrial Bank of Korea in women’s professional volleyball, received a notice of contract termination from the club on December 13 last year.
The club cited the fact that Cho Song-hwa left the team twice without permission in November last year when the V-League was in progress for the 2021-22 season as the reason for the contract termination. Cho Song-hwa insisted through her legal representative at the time, “I went to the hospital with the club trainer because I was not in good shape.”
He objected to the club’s disposition and filed an application for a provisional injunction to temporarily suspend the effect of the contract termination. And he also filed a lawsuit claiming that the club’s contract termination was invalid. However, the first judgment of the court did not favor Cho Song-hwa.
According to ‘Yonhap News’, the 14th Civil Settlement Division of the Seoul Central District Court (Presiding Judge Seo Bo-min) ruled on the 14th that the plaintiff lost the ‘claim suit for invalidity confirmation of contract termination’ filed by Cho Song-hwa against IBK Industrial Bank and the volleyball team. 메이저사이트
Cho Song-hwa was nominated for Heungkuk Life Insurance with the 4th pick in the first round in the 2011-12 rookie draft during her Ilshin Yeosang senior year, and made her V-League debut that year. He obtained qualification as a free agent (FA) and transferred to IBK Industrial Bank in 2020.
In January of last year, the 50th division of the civil agreement of the same court (Senior Judge Song Gyeong-geun) also rejected Song-hwa Cho’s application for provisional injunction and dismissed it.
Cho Song-hwa is currently invincible, but can sign a contract with any team in the V-League. The club released Cho Song-hwa as a free player, and the Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) announced it as a free player on December 17 last year in accordance with Article 13 of the Player Registration Regulations (Registration of Free Players).
