Representation of the employer – disputes with the employees

It occasionally happens that an employer, due to various reasons, becomes a party to a dispute (usually of collective character) with employees. The reasons behind such situations are e.g. disagreements regarding the work conditions, remunerations or social benefits.

A significant aspect of such disputes is the fact that the employer may choose the representative freely – he or she can empower any individual (natural person) who has the capacity to perform legal acts. The employee, on the other hand, may be represented only by trade unions (under article 2 of the Act on Resolving Collective Disputes).

In principle, the basis of any claims raised in disputes between employers and employees are the provisions of labour law, with special regard to the Labour Code. Notwithstanding the foregoing, there are matters that lack regulation therein – in such cases the adequate provisions of the Civil Code are deemed applicable.
