Labour Tribunal

The Labour Tribunal is established under section 93 of the Employment Ordinance and it has jurisdiction to hear and determine any labour dispute or complaint or other matter referred to it under the Employment Ordinance or any other provision of law.

The orders, decisions and awards of the Labour Tribunal shall be enforceable in the Supreme Court as though they were orders or judgments of that court.

The Labour Tribunal is composed of the President of the Labour Tribunal and at least two other members who are all appointed by the Governor. The appointments are made under section 94 of the Ordinance.

The Tribunal may, if it thinks fit, refer any question of law for decision to the Supreme Court (s 98 EO). Any question of law arising from the decision of the Labour Tribunal goes to the Court of Appeal.
