I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of employment law
experience. It is a pleasure to assist you today.
Well, your friend has two options at the moment. He can try to persuade Employee B to drop the charges, at which point the court would no longer have a case and this will go away. The only other option is to fight this in court. To do that, it is recommended to have an attorney present. In short of having an attorney present, he definitely needs to have a translator present in court and he needs to have with him any and all witnesses possible to portray his side of the story.
The court is not going to have a translator available...so probably more so than a lawyer, a translator is a necessity under the circumstances if this proceeds to court.
Based on the facts you have shared with me, it sounds as though your friend has a very defensible case. However, he has to be able to articulate the facts and will need a translator and witnesses for that purpose to win.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Please rate my answers positively.
