You need the help of an employment lawyer in case of disputes between an employer and an employee.
The most common cases of such disputes arise in illegal dismissal (redundancy or disciplinary dismissal); non-payment of wages or delay in payment; non-compliance with the rules for ensuring health and safety at work; provision of less than the actual wages, etc.
Employment law is a branch of the law which is regulated by the Employment Act and which has two main functions – economic and protective. Through its economic function, employment law ensures the development of production and the supply of services by regulating the relations that arise in connection with the provision of employment. Inseparably linked to this function is its protective function, which ensures the proper application of the principles of freedom of labor and the prohibition of forced labor. It also assures protection of the interests of both employees and employers.
