Supreme Court Rules on Inadequate Publication of Collective Agreement, 29/07/2009

Under Austrian rules on collective bargaining, certain matters that affect the interests of staff are subject to regulation at plant level. Section 30 of the Labour Relations Act specifically requires that employers must make employees aware of any such plant agreements. In a recent Supreme Court case the employer failed to publish a plant agreement adequately, costing it dearly.
