How can it help you

Complaints regarding discrimination in the workplace or violations of labour regulations

If you observed a violation of the labour regulations or any other deficiencies in the workplace, you can submit a complaint to the National Labour Inspectorate. 

If you as an employee believe that you were discriminated against or suffered other damage at work, you can submit a claim to one of the Labour Inspectorate regional offices. You can file a claim even after your contract has been terminated, however, you should do so within two months after you leave the job. You can submit a claim orally into minutes during a personal visit at the inspectorate, or you can do so by mail, fax or e-mail. You can also use an online form. In your claim, it should be clear what are the merits of your case and who’s deeds do you dispute. After admitting your claim, the Inspectorate shall carry out an inspection within 30 days, in exceptional cases the term can be extended to 60 days.     

You can also ask for consultation in labour matters, in this case you might use a special form, or you can do that by phone or during a personal visit at one of the regional offices. You can ask for consultations regarding employment of foreign workers.
