Where 30 or more workers are working for an employer, a Joint Committee may be formed by representatives of employers and workers in compliance with the Labour Law. The number of Joint Committee members depends on the number of workers working for the employer; in each case half the members should represent the workers and half the employer.
|Number of Workers||Number of Joint Committee Members|
|Less than 200||4|
If there is a Workers’ Committee in place then it will be the Workers’ Committee which will assume the nomination of the workers’ representatives. Otherwise representation is by direct election. In summary, the Joint Committee is responsible for work regulation, means of increasing productivity, training, protection from dangers, development of culture, development of social services, settling individual and collective disputes and submitting its recommendations to the employer.
