The Department of Labor Affairs offers the service of mediating and resolving employer and employee disputes. They are also charged with the administrative execution of the National Ordinance Termination Labor Agreements. Officers work objectively and follow an approved Complaint Procedure established to ensure that all parties are duly respected and issues are amicably resolved.

A Dismissals and Complaints Officer is charged with the proper advising of clients seeking answers or guidance on how to handle disputes with an employer. Every case is handled and advised on an individual basis; however, useful information on the policies and legislation in place to protect your rights can be shared and used for proper guidance.

Persons needing the service of a Dismissals and Complaints Officer at the Department of Labor Affairs may have the following questions:

  • Can an employer dismiss me for no reason?
  • How long is the period of notice?
  • What can I do if I don't agree with my dismissal?

Cases which have no clear outcome, or require litigation are referred to court; and if the customer does not have financial means for a lawyer, they may apply at the Department of Social Services for Legal Aid.

Do you have a dispute with an employer and you are not sure what your rights are or what to do? Contact a Dismissals and Complaints Officer at the Department of Labor Affairs for further assistance.
