Labour Complaints Tribunal Reconstituted for Fair Resolution of Disputes

Labour Complaints Tribunal Reconstituted for Fair Resolution of Disputes

After almost a year of being established, the Labour Complaints Tribunal was re-constituted on September 26. The Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour and Local Government says the tribunal was appointed by the Minister of Labour in accordance with the Labour Act. The body’s primary objective is to provide a fair and impartial appeal process to address complaints related to unfair dismissal or wrongful termination. The tribunal is comprised of five members, including an attorney-at-law nominated by the Chief Justice; a representative of the workers nominated by the National Trade Union Congress of Belize (NTUCB); a representative of the employers nominated by the Belize Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI); a representative nominated by the Minister of Labour; and the Commissioner of Labour, who serves as an ex-officio member. In addition, the ministry says the tribunal serves as a platform for resolving disputes and emphasizes the protection of the rights of both workers and employers, ensuring fairness and justice prevail.
