Labor Disputes

Dispute with employer – Are you in a dispute with your employer? Do you need help? 

What can lead to employment disputes? 

There are a number of situations that can lead to disputes between employees and employers. In the field of employment law, several laws are involved and it can be difficult to know what your rights and obligations are. A small selection of examples that can give rise to disputes between employers and employees are listed below. 

Breach of a collective agreement, such as an employer employing someone on a fixed-term contract without being allowed to do so under the collective agreement. 

Violation of the Employment Protection Act (1982:80), for example, dismissal without objective reasons. 

Violation of the Holiday Act (1977:480), for example, that an employee has not received a holiday in accordance with the rules of the Holiday Act.  

As an employee, you have both rights and obligations, for example, as an employee you are entitled to a salary for the work you do and holiday pay in accordance with your employment contract. An employee’s obligations include performing tasks and following instructions. These rights and obligations are mainly regulated by the Employment Protection Act (1982:80). 

Furthermore, a dispute with the employer can arise for many different reasons, for example: 

– If you consider that you are not being paid the right wages in accordance with your employment contract/collective agreement, 

  • if you do not receive compensation for overtime 
  • if you don’t receive Ob compensation 
  • if you receive too little holiday pay; and 
  • if you are being discriminated against in the workplace.

A dispute between the employer and the employee can also arise, for example, at the end of the employment relationship. In such situations, employees may be entitled to compensation and damages.  

If you find yourself in a dispute, it is important to meet with a lawyer immediately, not least because of the time limits in employment law. It may also be a good idea to bring a representative to any meetings you have with your employer.
