Estonia: Government aims to strengthen the role of Labour Dispute Committees

New regulations have been proposed to give more power to Labour Dispute Committees (LDCs).

The Ministry of Social Affairs is planning to develop the law regulating labour relations as part of its ongoing reform of collective agreement and collective labour dispute resolution.

On 1 July 2014, the Ministry sent other ministries the draft act of individual dispute resolution for approval. The new act aims to abolish the bottlenecks in current legislation.

According to the draft act, LDCs would get more power and resources so that they would be able to solve most labour disputes. Currently, only disputes with financial limit of claims up to €10,000 can be dealt with, others will be settled in court.
