Resolving a Labour Dispute at a Labour Dispute Committee

Viimati uuendatud: 24.02.2017


Before turning to court, a labour dispute between the employer and employee emanating from the employment contract conditions or the application of a legal act can be solved at the labour dispute committee. If parties have not come to an agreement in negotiations, it is suggested to turn to the labour dispute committee. Resolving a dispute at a labour dispute committee is stipulated in the Individual Labour Dispute Resolution Act. The committee formation order is laid down by the resolution „Labour dispute committee statutes“ by the Government of the Republic.

The labour dispute committee usually consists of three persons – the chairman (some Labour Inspectorate official), representative of employees, and representative of employer. The participants are appointed by the managing bodies of the central associations.

The committee reviews disputes arisen from employment contracts. Resolving disputes arisen from some other contract under the law of obligations is in the court’s competence. The labour dispute committee shall solve a dispute arisen from a contract for services, authorization agreement or some other contract under the law of obligations only if the employee demands the contract to be legitimized as an employment contract.
