We advise individuals (i.e. employees) and businesses (i.e. employers) on various labour dispute cases. In particular, we cover the following areas.
- Unfair dismissal
- Unpaid overtime claims
- Bonus disputes
- Accident at work claims
The labour tribunal is designed to resolve an individual labour dispute in a timely and effective manner. It consists of one qualified judge and two laypersons who specialise in labour relations.
Proceedings at the labour tribunal are usually held for up to three hearings in which mediation is mandatory before a decision can be rendered by the tribunal. In the vast majority of cases, a dispute is resolved either through mediation or tribunal’s decision within 3 months from filing a claim, which is much faster than a normal court case which takes 12 months on average.
We offer special fee arrangements for employment disputes for which a labour tribunal is available. For more detail, please see the fee for employment disputes.
