Labour law

The purpose of Labour Law is to establish procedures and rules in all matters concerning work and employment relationships, and to protect the workers’ rights. It also determines the rights and obligations of both parties in a contract of employment. Another area of ​lLabour law concerns the relationship between trade unions and employers’ organizations.


The strange thing is that although labour law concerns every employee in the country, few people are familiar with their legal rights regarding employment contracts, sick days, vacation, maternity, discrimination, dismissal and other rights.


There is a great lack of public information on this subject in Israel.


Clear rules exist to protect both employees and employers. Several trade unions operate in various fields; their purpose is to protect the rights of all their members. Most industries and private and public businesses, have liability insurance to protect themselves and their employees.
