Every employee should know that besides their duties towards their employer, they have rights which correspond to the employer’s duty to provide a safe workplace, to establish a safe working system and to maintain safe working equipment.

If during at work, you have an accident which you think is the result of a fault of your employer, you should know that you have the right to take legal action against your employer and make a claim for compensation for breach of the employer’s established duty to take all steps which are reasonably possible to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of their employees.

It is especially important that the accident be reported to the Department of Labour Inspection, and that the Labour Inspector in charge, comes at the scene of the accident to collect all relevant evidence, to take statements from witnesses and to make a report about the accident.

As part of the services that we provide, we make oral and written representations on behalf of the employee, to the relevant Labour Inspector and after we review all the relevant facts, we file legal action against the employer to protect the rights of the employee.
