Introductory Remarks

The settlement of labour disputes is a precondition for a harmonious working environment. Clarity of laws governing labour relations, as well as their consistent and adequate implementation, contributes to the establishment of a dependable system of dispute settlement. Pursuant to Ethiopian labour law, labour disputes are classified as individual and collective, and a number of bodies are in charge of resolving these disputes. Yet confusion on the criteria used to draw a distinction between individual and collective labour disputes brings about major issues in terms of interpretation and implementation of relevant legal rules and judicial decisions.
