Collective labour law – collective agreements

Collective labour law regulates the relationship between employee and employer organisations, and the rights deriving from that relationship. These include the rules governing the conclusion and termination of collective agreements, the industrial peace obligation resting on the two sides in an industry during the term of collective agreements and the systems in place for dispute resolution, including mediation in conflicts of interest and the settlement of disputes over the interpretation of collective agreements and similar in labour law.

Recently, regulations have been adopted relating to joint and several liabilities for contractors and the general application of pay and terms of employment provided for in collective agreements in various areas. Other developments include the right to exert influence in the workplace and the employees’ right of co-determination. Our employment lawyers regularly advise employers on how to ensure that the rights of employees are safeguarded, while at the same time maintaining the employer’s right of management.
