DISMISSALS TRIBUNAL

Name given to a specific type of industrial arbitration tribunal in Denmark. Collective agreements frequently provide for special control of the exercise by employers of their right to dismiss employees (see unfair dismissal ). For example, §4 of the Basic Agreement between the DA and LO (see basic agreements ) stipulates that dismissal must be justified by reasonable cause. The decision as to whether such reasonable cause exists is often referred to a dismissals tribunal. As a rule, the tribunal's procedures are specially designed to enable a decision to be reached speedily. They usually also include a preliminary (urgent) negotiating session aimed at arranging a solution through conciliation. These tribunals represent "courts of last resort", i.e. there is no appeal against their decisions.
