Delay of Labour Tribunal Ruling

Early Resolution | 21 July 2019
Department of Labour and Pensions (DLP)

We received a complaint that the Labour Tribunal had not delivered a ruling within the 28 days required by the Labour Law - four months had elapsed since the hearing. We contacted the Deputy Director of DLP who immediately followed up on the matter. 

The complainant received a written decision in their favour from the Labour Tribunal within one week after our contact with the DLP. The Tribunal found that the complainant was unfairly dismissed by their employer who was ordered to pay compensation.
