Employment disputes

Labour disputes are unresolved disputes between employees and employers. Labour disputes can be both individual and collective.

How to resolve an employment dispute?

Labour disputes could be settled in court and out of court. The pre-trial settlement of employment disputes has some significant advantages over litigation. Apart from requiring less resources and time, the pre-trial settlement of disputes reduces the risk of the loss of the company’s reputation as an employer, and helps to avoid unnecessary attention from the labour inspectorate.
